Understanding Your Bill
The SurgiCenter of Norfolk is a participating provider in most managed care health benefit plans. Most health plans require pre-certification from your insurance company. It is your responsibility to obtain this pre-certification from your insurance company. Usually, your doctor’s staff will assist you. If pre-certification is not obtained, your medical insurance may not cover the cost of your surgery.
It is The SurgiCenter of Norfolk’s policy that any deductibles, co-pays or other non-covered charges are to be paid prior to the date of service. SurgiCenter of Norfolk accepts cash, money order, cashier’s check or credit card. We also offer CareCredit, a credit card option used exclusively for your healthcare needs.
After your procedure, a claim will be submitted to your insurance company for payment of services rendered.
Ambulatory surgery procedures involve three types of services and separate bills:
- The Surgeon’s Services
- The Anesthesia Provider's Services
- The SurgiCenter of Norfolk's Facility Services
In addition, you may receive laboratory, radiology or pathology services (sometimes referred to as “ancillary services”) in connection with your surgery.
