Financial Information

You may receive bills from several different providers for the care rendered to you the day of surgery: your surgeon, the anesthesiologist, the Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) facility fee, and a laboratory if specimen was obtained during your procedure.

Amelia Island Surgery Center will verify your health insurance benefits prior to surgery and bill your carrier following your procedure. Estimated patient responsibility of co-pay, deductible, and/or out of pocket fees are expected on the day of surgery.

We accept cash, credit cards, and personal checks. We are also able to offer financing of your portion of the bill through Care Credit, an organization established for this purpose.

If you are unable to pay your portion of the bill, we may be able to set up a payment plan. Cash pay prices may be offered if you do not have insurance or if your procedure is not covered by your plan.

Charity care is offered on a limited basis and you must qualify by completing the Financial Assistance/Charity Application which you can contact us to request.

Price Transparency

Estimation and Quotes

The Agency for Health Care Administration’s (AHCA’s) continues to place an emphasis on health care transparency for Florida’s consumers. AHCA offers a website – FloridaHealthPriceFinder to help patients find data on health care costs for national, state, and local prices.

Additionally, Amelia Island Surgery Center recognizes that the financial aspect of your care can be overwhelming. Our commitment to you is to be as transparent as possible and to provide you with the information to help you make decisions about your health care. Once you determine with your physician the services you require, we can help you determine the price estimate of the service for those patients with or without insurance.

For the patients with insurance, you should first contact your insurance company to understand your plan benefits for the care/service you anticipate receiving from Amelia Island Surgery Center. You should confirm with your insurance company if the physician and the facility are both covered by your insurance plan. This is very important to know to help determine your total financial responsibility for the service you need.

If for any reason the physician or facility is not a participating provider with your insurance, your financial responsibility may increase.

What is pricing transparency?

“Pricing transparency” is the term used to describe initiatives in the health care industry to provide meaningful pricing information to consumers. The health care industry is often complex and difficult for consumers to navigate. Price transparency is a means of providing consumers price information on common services. Our ASC is committed to presenting pricing information in a way that will be easy for the consumer to access and understand, as well as to providing other useful information about financial assistance available, definitions of key terminology and key financial policies. Using the AHCA website, FloridaHealthPriceFinder, a consumer can determine national, state, and local pricing for a variety of health care services.
