In an effort to better serve our patients, Daytime Outpatient Surgery Center is proud to announce that we have created a pricing structure for a new cash option for our surgical procedures.
The prices for the medical procedures listed below include the facility fee, the surgeon’s fee and the anesthesiologist’s fee. The initial consultation with the surgeon is also included, as is uncomplicated follow-up care. The duration of postoperative care is different for each surgical procedure and may vary based on the patients’ specific needs. Therefore, your surgeon will inform you about the amount of postoperative care covered by the cash price during your initial consultation. The $250 initial consultation fee will be applied to the total cost of the procedure should surgery be indicated. If surgery is not indicated, the $250 will be retained by the surgeon as payment for your doctor consultation. A list of what is NOT included in the fee is as follows:
The medical procedures set forth below are only a partial listing of procedures available in this pricing model. If the procedure that you need is not listed below, please contact us to inquire about availability and pricing.
The prices quoted by our representative are not negotiable and are available only to those who pay the entire amount in advance. We are able to offer these prices due to the absence of risk for non-payment for services and the lack of expense in processing the claims. Alternative payment arrangements can be made with human resource departments within companies or divisions of self-insured entities if necessary.
Once again, if you are scheduled for surgery at our facility and private insurance or Medicare is to be filed by us, these prices do not apply to you.
