Billing Information

If you have given complete and accurate insurance information to your physician’s office, a member of our business office staff will call your insurance company prior to your procedure and verify your medical benefits. We will secure any information regarding copayment, coinsurance and/or deductible amounts that will be your responsibility. A member of our business office staff will contact you with an estimate of these amounts. Payment will be expected in full on the day of your procedure. You will be billed for any amount incurred in excess of the estimate.

Any patient with no insurance or whose insurance has denied coverage for the scheduled procedure must be prepared to pay on the day of the procedure. For your convenience, Dothan Surgery Center accepts the following forms of payment: cash, Discover,  Visa, and MasterCard accepted:

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment and ambulatory service center fees.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day prior to your medical service or item. You can ask your health care provider and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
