Understanding How We Bill at Pacific Surgical Center

Pacific Surgical Center will gather information regarding your insurance and determine what portion of our facility fee the provider will pay and what portion will be your responsibility.
Our facility charge covers pre-operative evaluation, equipment, personnel, most supplies and medications, and use of the operating and recovery rooms. Unless prior arrangements have been made, payment in full of the patient’s portion of the bill must be made at registration. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards.

Because our patients may receive separate bills for lab work, anesthesia, and physicians’ services, we will direct all questions regarding those bills for service to the appropriate offices.

Out-of-pocket cost information for patients

We are required by law to bill you for amounts considered to be “Patient Responsibility” by insurance companies, including Medicare.

If you are covered by a managed-care (HMO or PPO) plan, your co-payment must be collected at the time of service. This is a contractual requirement of insurers. We also accept most major credit cards.

You will receive a monthly statement for all charges considered “Patient Responsibility.” Our policy is for all accounts to be settled in 90 days. You may contact our billing department if you need special arrangements. Again, we accept most major credit cards.

Financial counseling is available for all of our patients.

If you have any questions regarding billing, insurance or your financial responsibilities, please feel free to contact us at 360.442.7902.
