Estimate of Charges

Patient or prospective patients may request from this facility and other health care providers an estimate of charges prior to receiving services. We must respond to you within seven days of your request.

Our estimate will be based upon the procedure your physician tells us that he or she plans to perform and the insurance information that you provide to us. We normally will contact your insurer to learn of your eligibility for the procedure and will then base our estimate upon what the insurer tells us about the payment they will make for the procedure. The procedure your physician actually performs may differ from the initial one planned based upon your medical condition at the time of the procedure. Since we cannot forecast the change, the estimate will be based upon the planned procedure as scheduled by your physician.

You may pay less or more for this procedure or service at another facility or in another health care setting.


Prior to your scheduled procedure, we will contact you with the results of the verification of your insurance benefits to advise of your insurance deductible and co-payment amounts that will be due from you prior to your surgery. We expect the amount estimate due to be paid on the day of your surgery when you register at our admission desk.

If you need special consideration for payment of the amount due, you must contact us prior to the date of the planned procedure so we can evaluate your eligibility. You may be eligible to pay your balance monthly over a period of three months.

If we received denial of payment from your insurer or Health Maintenance Organization, we will notify you. If we receive payment from your insurer or HMO that is less than projected, we will notify you of additional payment due. Payment will be expected within 15 days of notification of the balance due. Failure to pay the balance due by the deadline will result in your account being turned over to a collection agency.

If you have notified us in advance that you have no insurance and will pay cash for your procedure, you may be eligible to receive a discount off the usual charge for payment of your estimated charges in advance of the scheduled procedure. You must attest that you have no insurance and you must pay the full estimated charges in advance. If the procedure performed by your physician differs from the one scheduled, you may owe the difference between the scheduled procedure and the actual procedure performed. The balance, if any, will be due within 15 days. Failure to pay the balance will result in the discount arrangement being null and void and a full payment will be due.
