We should be able to work with most insurances. We'll do our best to obtain an accurate cost for our patients ahead of procedure, while working with as many third party payers as we can tolerate. Given the high burden of dealing with pre-authorizations, denials, resubmissions, delayed payments and declining "reimbursements," we will be working to taper our exposure to uncooperative insurers who make doctors' and patients' lives more difficult.
Simultaneously, we will be building out a list of cash-based prices as an alternative option for patients as we accumulate data regarding our own base costs and our affiliates' facility fees. We will bundle those costs into an all-inclusive single fee, to include surgery, anesthesia and facility. We'll model off of the transparent pricing system of Surgery Center of Oklahomawhich offers a multitude of surgeries at a fraction of the cost of typical third party health coverage schemes. Cash pricing could be a better option for those with an HSA, for those covered by a business that is self-insured, for the uninsured, for medical tourists and perhaps others.
Cash price options are under development.
Feel free to inquire! We'll work with you as best we can.
