Financial policy

Southshore Surgery Center’s fees cover the use of the facility only, and do not include laboratory, pathology, surgeon or anesthesiologist fee. You will be billed separately for these services.

As a courtesy, we will bill your primary and secondary insurance carriers or governmental agency directly for the Southshore Surgery Center’s charges. Be sure to bring your most current insurance, Medicare, or public assistance card with you on the day of your surgery. If you have more than one insurance carrier, we will also need accurate secondary billing information.

Please be aware of any admission policies your insurance plan may have. You or your physicians may have to adhere to certain requirements in order to insure maximum reimbursement. Failure to obtain pre-authorization, physician referral, or a second opinion may greatly reduce or eliminate your benefits.

Be prepared to bring any co-pay or co-insurance amounts on the day of your surgery. Patients who do not have insurance coverage may also be required to pay a portion of their charges in advance. Also, please make sure you bring a photo ID. We will need to see this as part of your insurance validation. We realize, however, that at times you may require special financial arrangements. In these instances, please phone our office prior to your surgery to discuss alternative methods of payment. Southshore Surgery Center accepts cash, cashier’s checks, credit cards, and personal checks with a valid I.D.

Please feel free to contact our business office at any time if you have questions or concerns regarding the facility charges, the financial policy, or billing procedures.
