Financial Arrangements

Mercy River Hills Surgery Center will charge for the use of the facility, which includes the costs of the operating room, recovery room and supplies for your surgery.  Your surgeon, anesthesiologist and if applicable, your physician assistant, radiologist and pathologist will bill you separately for their services. 

As a courtesy to you, we will file most insurance claims for you.  However, if your insurance company denies payments, you may be responsible to pay for all services related to your surgery. For questions regarding your coverage and/or possible remaining patient financial responsibility, please contact your insurance company directly.

In some cases we are able to pre-estimate the cost of your facility charges and determine what balance you may have after insurance processes your claim.  This information will be reviewed with you prior to surgery. A portion of your pre-estimated costs will be collected on the day of your surgery and applied to your account.

Any remaining balance due after your insurance company processes the claim will be billed to you and is subject to our financial policy.
