Billing & Payments
The Panama City Surgery Center has implemented a transparent, bundled pricing program to serve self-insured plans, workers’ compensation carriers and those patients who have high deductible plans or no insurance at all. As a physician-owned facility, our priority is providing the highest level of patient care for the lowest possible cost.
We realize how complicated medical bills can be and how confusing it is to navigate insurance rules, hospital itemized billing, cost shifting, and not knowing what a medical procedure is going to cost until long after the services have been provided. The changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) have caused patients to pay higher out-of-pocket costs due to growing deductibles and complicated insurance plans. We believe there is a better ay to serve the health care needs of your patients.
Utilizing free market principles, our transparent, direct, package pricing means the patient knows exactly what the cost of the service will be upfront. Fees for the surgeon, anesthesiologist and facility are all included in one low price. There are no hidden costs, charges or surprises. And, although each surgery is unique and each patient’s needs different, as a physician-owned facility we are able to design a program where e control the costs and can offer a straight forward, transparent price for our services.
If you are facing an upcoming medical procedure and are frustrated with the confusing insurance- and hospital-designed systems, which have no incentives to control waste or offer the lowest possible price, then give us a call. Let us introduce you to the way medicine should work.
