Please contact Lafayette Surgicare prior to surgery to make financial arrangements or ask questions, and to be sure you are pre-admitted. In most cases, we should be able to estimate the cost of your surgery beforehand. Our staff will help you finalize your financial arrangements before your surgery. We require that all payment arrangements be made before your surgery.
To avoid delays in processing your account, please bring copies of your insurance cards, driver's license and/or referrals.
Billing for Lafayette Surgicare and physicians is separate. We charge for the use of our center, which includes the cost of the operating room, recovery room, certain laboratory tests, and supplies for surgery.
Your surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist and pathologist (if applicable) will bill you separately for their services.
Uninsured and/or cash patients will be required to pay for services on or before the admission date. Patients with verified insurance will be required to pay an estimated portion only on or before the day of surgery. MasterCard, Visa, Discovery and American Express are accepted.
Lafayette Surgicare will bill your insurance company, however all deductibles/patient coinsurance are the patient's responsibility and will be requested from you and due prior to surgery.
Lafayette Surgicare recognizes their obligation to remain flexible in financial matters. Financial arrangements must be made prior to admission and must be approved by the administrator or business office manager
