We are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality experience possible. This policy outlines the New Tampa Surgery Center requirements for collecting patient due balances in a timely manner.
Preparing for Payment
We will call you in the days leading up to your surgery with the amount due on the day of surgery. We collect any co-payments, unmet deductibles, and co-insurance amounts at the time of registration on your surgery day. The co-insurance amount collected at this time is an estimate — the total financial obligation will be determined by your insurance company and will appear on your Explanation of Benefits. If our estimated amount is less or more than the actual amount, we will bill or refund you the difference.
If you do not have insurance, you are responsible for the entire surgeon, facility and anesthesia fees. Please be sure to arrange payment for each entity separately, as New Tampa Surgery Center cannot accept payment on behalf of another entity.
We accept cash, check, Visa, Amex, Mastercard and Discover. Checks should be made payable to: New Tampa Surgery Center. As a reminder, you will still be responsible for any remaining balance left by your insurance company.
If you have questions or concerns regarding your financial obligations for an upcoming procedure, please contact your surgeon, anesthesia group and your insurance company. In addition, please be sure your authorization/pre-certification for your surgery is on file prior to your procedure.
If you have other financial questions, please feel free to contact us at 813-991-7575.
