FLORIDA PRICE TRANSPARENCY & ESTIMATE OF COSTS

In accordance with Price Transparency and Patient Billing per 395.301, FS you can find service bundle information on the Agency for HealthCare Administration’s pricing website here.

A non-personalized estimate of costs may be incurred for anticipated services. Non-personalized means that it is not specific to the patient, actual costs will be based on services actually provided at the time of the procedure. All patients (or prospective patients) have the right to request a personalized estimate of costs for the procedures and services performed at Center for Sight.

To obtain a personalized estimate of your financial responsibility for your planned surgery center visit, please contact our billing department at (888) 856-1878.

Our estimate will be based upon the procedure your physician tells us that he or she plans to perform and the insurance information that you provide to us. We normally will contact your insurer to learn of your eligibility for the procedure and will then base our estimate upon what the insurer tells us about the payment they will make for the procedure.  The procedure your physician actually performs may differ from the initial one planned based upon your medical condition at the time of the procedure.  Since we cannot forecast the change, the estimate will be based upon the planned procedure as scheduled by your physician. You may pay less or more for this procedure or service at another facility or in another health care setting.

Please keep in mind that the physicians and healthcare practitioners providing surgical services at Laser and Surgical Services at Center For Sight LLC may not accept the same insurance plans as Center For Sight and may bill separately. All patients should contact the healthcare providers that may provide services regarding a personalized cost estimate, billing practices, and participation with a patient’s health insurer or HMO.

If you have additional questions about payment or billing please call (888) 856-1878 to speak with a team member.

BILLING, PAYMENT & FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE POLICIES  

Center For Sight has policies established regarding billing, payment, collection, and financial assistance. Please contact the facility prior to your scheduled procedure to make financial arrangements and address any questions you may have regarding your procedure. Our staff will also help you finalize your financial/payment arrangements prior to surgery.

Center For Sight follows a financial assistance program that strives to reduce the patient’s financial responsibility for services provided at Laser and Surgical Services at Center For Sight LLC. The facility is responsible for following and complying with insurance contract obligations and federal and state regulations, however, we believe our program provides a variety of options to reduce the patient’s financial liability. 

The facility and its central billing office are always available as resources for the patient pre-procedure for assistance. Please contact the facility directly for guidance at 888-856-1878 during regular business hours for assistance.

Questions related to financial assistance, payment plans, charity care policy, and collection procedures are always welcomed and encouraged if they arise. Certain service providers (such as Anesthesiologists, pathologists, or laboratories) may bill for their services separately from the surgery center and may offer their own financial assistance program—please contact them for further information regarding their services.

We offer affordable financing with low monthly payments and accept a variety of payment methods including, but not limited to: financing through Alphaeon (you can apply online at www.centerforsight.net), flexible spending accounts and credit cards (we accept Master Card, Visa and American Express).  We also offer an annual charity care program called Mission Cataract. Please visit www.cfsfoundation.org for more information and to see if you qualify for this program.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE APPLICATION PROCESS

The patient may request the facility to provide details regarding the financial assistance program. If interested, you will be required to complete an application for financial hardship assistance that provides us information about your income and expenses. This will allow us to access your needs and qualifications to determine qualification of available assistance. Financial assistance will not be provided to those eligible for any program coverage (examples include Medicaid, disability coverage, COBRA, etc.). Santa Fe Surgery follows the most recent poverty guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

COLLECTION PROCEDURES

Prior to your scheduled procedure, we will contact you with the results of the verification of your insurance benefits to advise of your insurance deductible and co-payment amounts that will be due from you prior to your surgery. We expect the amount estimate due to be paid on/or before the day of your surgery.

If you need special consideration for payment of the amount due, you must contact us prior to the date of the planned procedure so we can evaluate your eligibility based on your income and expenses. Please also see “Financial Assistance Application Process” above.

If we receive payment from your insurer or HMO that is less than projected, we will notify you of additional payment due. Payment will be expected within 15 days of notification of the balance due.  Failure to pay the balance due by the deadline will result in further collections activity.

If you have notified us in advance that you have no insurance and will pay cash for your procedure, you must pay the full estimated charges in advance. If the procedure performed by your physician differs from the one scheduled, you may owe the difference between the scheduled procedure and the actual procedure performed. 

The balance, if any, will be due within 15 days. For more information, including quality measures and statistics about our (or any other) facility, please visit www.floridahealthfinder.gov.

PROVIDERS

Please see the list of providers associated with Center For Sight. The patient and their provider(s) are responsible to elect and determine which services, diagnostics, and planned procedures will be authorized to perform based on their intended payment plan and policies.

Patients and prospective patients should contact each health care provider who will provide services in the facility to determine the health insurers and HMOs with which the provider participates as a network provider or preferred provider. Another health care provider who will bill you for services could include a medical doctor that performed the procedure, an anesthesia provider, pathology provider and laboratory which will analyze tissue your physician may require be sent to the laboratory to diagnose your condition. 

We may be required to send tissue for analysis by a pathology lab contracted with your health plan.  Your insurer’s provider network information may include the pathology lab in the insurer’s network of providers.  You may want to check with your insurer.  Or, you can contact the laboratory directly about whether they participate in your health plan.
