Facility Fees and Insurance
Charges associated with services provided at Schaumburg Surgery Center will consist of a facility fee for the patient’s use of the Pre-Op area, the Operating Room and the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (Recovery Room), as well as all supplies and medications. Self-pay patients may also be charged for certain single-use implants and/or surgical supplies. The facility fees do not include anesthesia, laboratory, pathology or surgeon. You will be billed separately for these fees.
Please be aware of any admission policies your insurance plan may have. You or your physician may have to adhere to certain requirements in order to ensure maximum reimbursement. Failure to obtain pre-authorization, physician referral, or a second opinion may greatly reduce or eliminate your benefits.
- Be prepared to pay any co-insurance/deductible amounts on the day of your surgery.
- Patients who do not have insurance coverage are also required to pay their charges in advance or on the day of surgery.
- As a courtesy, we will bill your primary and secondary insurance carriers or governmental agency directly for the facility's charges.
- Schaumburg Surgery Center accepts cash, cashier's checks, Visa/MasterCard, Discover, CareCredit and personal checks with a valid I.D.
