Insurance and Billing
Surgery charges at Casa Colina Surgery Center will consist of a base facility fee and anesthesia fee. We will require you to pay any deductible or coinsurance on the day of surgery. We will check with your insurance to find out this total for you, which will be part of the facility fee. The anesthesia bill will come from the anesthesiologist’s office.
Prior to your surgery, estimation for this charge can be provided for you. Additional charges may be necessary for time over the estimate we give you.
Before your surgery date, you will be notified of your insurance coverage and any deductible or copay due on the day of your surgery. Should you have specific questions regarding your plan, we suggest that you call your insurance company. We will file your insurance papers for you. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express for your deductible or copay. We also offer the option to pay bills online.
The Cost of Your Procedure
Because you are responsible for costs for covered healthcare services until you reach your deductible, you should comparison shop if you elect to have a nonemergency procedure.
You can use tools like Healthcare Bluebook and the Medicare Procedure Price Lookup (for Medicare patients). Many health insurance websites also provide information on where to find in-network services.
A High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is a plan with a higher deductible than a traditional health insurance plan.
A High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) can be a wise way to save money on health insurance and take a proactive role in your healthcare.
Health insurance is an agreement between you and an insurance company of your choosing.
Should the facility bill or anesthesia costs exceed what is anticipated; you will be billed for the difference. Overpayments will be refunded, at the latest, 30 days from receipt of your insurance’s payment. Our facility bill will not include the services of your surgeon, anesthesiologist or any other outside services.
You have the right as a patient to request information and have your questions answered regarding any fees or payment policies. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call our business office at (909) 593-3550. Please call within the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
