Insurance/ Billing

Your right to information on payment policies

The SurgCenter of Western Maryland, LLC will bill your insurance company or the responsible party for your services separately from your surgeon, the anesthesiologist (if required for your surgery), and pathology or laboratory charges, if a specimen or sample was taken. It is our responsibility to verify that your insurance plan covers the facility services.
 
We are an Out of Network facility but we honor them as In-Network. What this means is that you will not incur any additional fees  and it would be same as if you’re having your procedure done at the hospital. You are responsible for your In-Network deductibles and co-pays. We accept Cash, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover to assist you in paying for your services. To ensure proper filing of claims, please bring valid insurance cards with you on the date of surgery.

If you receive anesthesia, you will be billed separately by the Sheridan Healthcare for their professional fees.  These fees are not included in the surgical center facility fees. Again, you will be responsible for your In-Network copays only.  If you have any questions regarding anesthesia charges, please call us to request their contact information.

Patients who experience financial hardship, according to current Federal Poverty Guidelines, may apply for charity adjustments or billing discounts. Applications must be made prior to surgery. Patients can request information regarding this policy by calling and asking to speak with a billing department representative.

It is your right as a patient to request information or have questions answered regarding fees or payment policies. If you have any questions or problems regarding your bill, please contact our billing department, and our staff will be happy to assist you.
