We Make Payments as Convenient for You as Possible
Children's West Surgery Center accepts most types of insurance. Preliminary insurance information will be obtained from your physician's office at the time your procedure is scheduled. A Surgery Center staff member may contact you to discuss your insurance coverage prior to surgery. Payment of your co-pay and/or deductible is expected in advance or on the day of the procedure. Keep reading for more insurance & payment info.
Sample of insurances accepted:
Please be aware that the facility charges DO NOT include fees for your surgeon, consulting physician, or anesthesiologist. In addition, lab and pathology tests if performed will be billed separately.
If you are unsure whether your insurance is in-network with the surgery center or anesthesia group contact your insurance provider to determine what type of coverage, if any, is available for your procedure. Please note that although we participate with many insurance companies/networks, procedures may not be covered under all plans or products they offer.
Your Rights and Protections Against Surprise Medical Bills
- You are only responsible for paying your share of the cost (like the copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles that you would pay if the provider or facility was in-network). Your health plan will pay out-of-network providers and facilities directly.
- Cover emergency services without requiring you to get approval for services in advance (prior authorization).
- Cover emergency services by out-of-network providers.
- Base what you owe the provider or facility (cost-sharing) on what it would pay an in-network provider or facility and show that amount in your explanation of benefits.
- Count any amount you pay for emergency services or out-of-network services toward your deductible and out-of-pocket limit.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
