Services may be provided by Orthopedic Surgery Center of Palm Beach County as well as by other health care providers who may separately bill the patient and who may not participate with the same health insurers or health maintenance organizations as the facility. The bills a patient will receive from our center are for Outpatient Surgical Services Facility fee for the type of surgical procedure. This fee includes nursing care, medications, standard supplies, and use of the operating and recovery rooms.
You may receive separate bills for each of the following:
- The surgeon’s fee for performing the surgery or procedure.
- The Anesthesiologist’s fee for providing anesthesia for the procedure, if applicable
- Laboratory or x-ray tests prior to the procedure, if applicable.
- Pathology, if applicable.
We require payment of your deductible, co-payment, and co-insurance at the time of registration. We accept cash, cashier’s checks, debit and all major credit cards. We do not accept personal checks. For procedures that are not covered by insurance and for patients who do not have medical insurance, we require full payment (100%) at the time of admission. Please call our office prior to your surgery date if special payment arrangements are necessary.
Many same-day surgical procedures are covered by standard medical insurance and we participate with many insurance plans. However, you should call your insurance company prior to your surgery date to verify that we participate with your plan and to understand the coverage for your procedure. We will submit claims to most major insurance carriers.
For specific information regarding your financial responsibility, please call our office at 561-300-1400. Your physician and anesthesiologist fees, as well as any pathology or laboratory studies, are processed separately by the individual service providers. Information may be found on our contracted provider’s section.
