As you prepare for surgery, we want to make sure you understand how you will be billed for the services you receive. At a minimum, you will receive two separate bills. Depending on your specific surgery, you may also get additional bills.
The success of your surgery depends on a team effort by many dedicated professionals, including those in our center. Because government and insurance rules do not permit the surgical center to bill or collect money for physicians, anesthesiologists, laboratories, etc., these providers must send you a separate bill and collect payment from you separately.
We realize that these multiple bills can be confusing. If you have any questions, contact us at 919-470-1000. Our staff will answer your questions and guide you to the proper sources of information.
Explanation of bills you will receive:
An estimated pre-determined fee is charged for the use of the facility. This fee includes medications, most supplies, and charge for operating room time. There is an additional fee for the recovery care center.
We will file your insurance claim for you. Prior to your procedure, a staff member from DASC will contact you to discuss your financial obligations.
A deposit may be required on the day of surgery, depending on verification of benefits from your insurance company. This deposit is calculated based on the estimate of the facility fee and any applicable deductibles, co-pays, or coinsurance charges.
Questions and payments regarding your surgery center billing should be addressed to the Davis Ambulatory Surgery Center.
Elective plastic surgery fees are based on time and do not include implants, overnight stay, laser fees, or preoperative testing.
Since your physician is not an employee of Davis Ambulatory Surgical Center, he or she will bill you separately for their services. Contact your physician’s office should you have any questions regarding charges or payments for their services.
The anesthesia you receive will be provided by Regional Anesthesia, PLLC. The anesthesia care team will provide either intravenous or general anesthesia and will monitor you throughout the surgery.
