Insurance & Billing
The business office will try to contact you prior to surgery regarding financial arrangements. We will gladly verify and process your insurance benefits, and notify you in advance of your insurance benefits and your financial responsibilities, including deductibles and co-insurance to be paid on the day of surgery. Patients with no insurance are required to pay upfront on the day of their surgery.
You can also expect to receive a separate bill from your surgeon, the anesthesia provider, and any lab, x-ray or pathology testing.
