Outpatient Surgery Center Billing Information
Anticipating surgery can be stressful and part of the anxiety can arise out of not fully understanding out-of-pocket expenses associated with a proposed surgery. At the Outpatient Surgery Center at TGH Brandon Healthplex, we believe it is important to make patients aware of their potential financial expense prior to their procedure.
One of our insurance verification specialists will contact you if there are any anticipated out-of pocket expenses associated with your planned procedure. Please realize charges for your procedure at the outpatient surgery center are separate from your surgeon’s charge as well as any anesthesiologist and/or pathologist charges which may be incurred. The surgery center collects all co-payments, or deductible amounts on the day of your procedure. If your procedure is not covered by insurance, full payment is required at the time of service unless other arrangements are made in advance.
In the event we are out-of-network with your insurance carrier, the Surgery Center at TGH Brandon Healthplex will match your plan’s in-network benefits to eliminate any increased cost for you.
Patients, or their legal guardians, are responsible for payment of facility services. As a courtesy, the outpatient surgery center will bill your primary and secondary insurance carriers for you. Please bring your insurance cards with you on the day of surgery.
The Outpatient Surgery Center at TGH Brandon Healthplex accepts cash, checks, major credit cards, flexible spending accounts (FSA), health savings accounts (HSA), and care credit as financing options.
Please contact our business office at (813) 660-6600 Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with questions regarding your billing or insurance information.
