We will bill your insurance (both primary and secondary) for services we provide. However, you are responsible for any deductibles, co-pays and charges not covered by insurance. We may ask you to pay these fees prior to surgery. Unpaid balances are due upon receipt of a billing statement.
If we cannot verify your insurance coverage, you must sign a statement assuming responsibility for all charges. If your coverage is in doubt, you also must sign a statement assuming responsibility for all charges. This may occur, for example, in worker’s compensation claims, when claim acceptance has not been established.
Uninsured and cash patients must make payment arrangements in advance. Full payment may be required prior to the day of surgery.
Some financing options may be available. Financial arrangements will be reviewed with you and must be finalized at the time of your surgery.
We will send you monthly statements on account balances. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our business office at 503-566-3507.
For your convenience, we accept VISA and MasterCard for account payments.
Please keep in mind that you may receive bills from as many as 6 different medical service providers following your surgery.
These would include any of the following that apply:
- Willamette Surgery Center
- Your surgeon
- Your anesthesiologist
- The laboratory that processed your clinical laboratory tests
- Any medical appliances or products not covered in the surgery center’s fee
- An assistant surgeon if one is used
