Surgery Center Financial Information

The Surgery Center bills do not include fees for any physician or surgeon services. If your treatment includes the services of a radiologist, pathologist, anesthesiologist, or other physician specialist, you will receive a separate bill from these physicians. If you have questions regarding any of your physician bills, please call the telephone number printed on the physician’s bill.

Please be aware of any admission policies your insurance plan may have. You or your physician may have to adhere to certain requirements in order to ensure maximum reimbursement. Failure to obtain pre-authorization may result in a cancellation of surgical services.

As a courtesy, we will bill your primary and secondary insurance carriers or governmental agency directly for the 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.

Be prepared to pay any co-pay or deductible amounts on the day of your surgery. You will be contacted by the billing office prior to your arrival with the required amount.

We realize that at times you may require special financial arrangements. In these instances, please phone Accounts Payable at (575) 443-7400 prior to your surgery to discuss alternative methods of payment. The Surgery Center accepts cash, cashier’s checks, credit cards, and personal checks with a valid ID.
