Charges at Lakeview Surgery Center are based on a facility fee for each procedure performed. Prior to surgery you will be notified of your estimated insurance coverage. We collect any co-pay or co-insurance fees prior to the day of surgery. If this is not possible, please contact us to make other payment arrangements.
Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. Please contact Ryan Bannor at 515-273-5356 for more information.
Following surgery, we will file your insurance papers for you. Cosmetic procedure fees will be collected prior to the surgery. Anesthesia charges, lab, and your physician's fee will be billed separately. For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
If you would like to request any information or have any questions regarding our fee or payment policies, please do not hesitate to contact our business office at (515) 273-5240.
Effective January 1, 2016 we accept Care Credit as payment. Please note that after your Insurance Company has paid Lakeview Surgery Center you will have 90 days to pay your statement using Care Credit. The card holder must come to the Surgery Center to pay IN PERSON. We cannot take Care Credit Payment over the telephone for this.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your health care will cost
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have certain types of health care coverage or who are not using certain types of health care coverage an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items or services are provided.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any health care items or services upon request or when scheduling such items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- If you schedule a health care item or service at least 3 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 1 business day after scheduling. If you schedule a health care item or service at least 10 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after scheduling. You can also ask any health care provider or facility for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you do, make sure the health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after you ask.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more for any provider or facility than your Good Faith Estimate from that provider or facility, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate and the bill.
