Summerport Surgery Center contracts with most major carriers.
Our business office team will submit the claim to your insurance company for the facility charges. Most surgical procedures performed in our facilities are covered in whole or in part by medical insurance.
As a service to our patients, prior to the day of the procedure, we will provide an estimate of the surgery center fees and patient responsibility (coinsurance, copayments, or deductible amounts) you will be required to pay prior to or on the day of your procedure. The surgery center's fees are based on the procedure your physician scheduled. As with any medical procedure, if unforeseen circumstances should arise during the procedure, it may be necessary for the physician to perform additional or different procedures and/or to use more/less expensive supplies or implants. The use of implants and/or the difference in procedures may cause the estimate to vary significantly.
However, it is understood that final gross charges and patient responsibility will depend on actual services provided and may or may not exceed the original estimate.
As referenced in Florida Statue 395, all patients or prospective patients are encouraged to contact his or her health insurer or health maintenance organization for additional information concerning cost-sharing responsibilities.
