As we do not participate with commercial insurance carriers, elective surgical procedure fees will be provided and payment is required two weeks prior to surgery. Be aware that by choosing an out of network physician and facility fees are typically higher than in-network providers.
We highly suggest that you check directly with your insurance carrier and or insurance administrator at the phone number on your insurance card in order to find out any applicable fees, copays, deductibles, and alternative providers that may be participating in your insurance plan.
