We strictly follow the most up-to-date guidelines, regarding making information about our facility easily accessible, outlined by AHCA. We want all of our patients to feel informed.
Services may be provided in this health care facility by the facility as well as other health care providers who may separately bill the patient and who may or may not participate with the same health insurers or health maintenance organizations as the facility.
Patients and prospective patients may request from this facility and other health care providers a more personalized estimate of charges and other information. Patients and prospective patients should contact each health care practitioner who will provide services in the ASC to determine the health insurers and health maintenance organizations with which the health care practitioner participates as a network provider or preferred provider.

Service bundle information is a non-personalized estimate of cost that may be incurred by the patient for anticipated services. Actual costs will be based on services actually provided to the patient. It is your right to request a personalized estimate from the center. Please reach out directly to the center on our policies on financial assistance, charity care, and collections procedures.
Please contact health care practitioners anticipated to provide services to the patient while in the center regarding a personalized estimate, billing practices and participation with patient’s insurance provider or health maintenance organization (HMO) as the practitioners may not participate with the same health insurers or HMO as the center.
