Transparency in Healthcare

In accordance with Florida law, the facility is required to let you know that you may or may not pay less for the services at another facility or in another health care setting.

Please know that your attending doctor who booked your procedure(s) at the facility may not be on the medical staff of such other facilities or health care settings.

Furthermore, your attending physician who booked your procedures to be done at this facility, and other health care providers not limited to but as example anesthesiologists, intraoperative monitoring services, durable medical suppliers, and anatomical pathologists may provide services to you at the facility that are not a part of facility’s fees. If any of their services are provided to you while being a patient of this facility, the provider(s) will bill separately for their services rendered.

Patients and prospective patients may request from this facility and other health care providers a more personalized estimate of charges and other information including specific contact information prior to service.

Patients and prospective patients should contact each health care practitioner who will provide services in the facility or as an external service to determine the health insurers and health maintenance organizations (HMO) with which the health care practitioner participates as a network provider or preferred provider.

Payment Bundle Resources
Information on payments made to the facility for defined bundles of services and procedures is available at http://pricing.floridahealthfinder.gov/. The service bundle information is a non-personalized estimate of costs that may be incurred by the patient for anticipated services, and actual costs will be based on services actually provided to the patient. The patient can request a personalized estimate from the center at any time before or after the procedure is performed. Patients should contact the health care practitioners anticipated to provide services to the patient while in the center regarding a personalized estimate, billing practices and participation with patient’s insurance provider or HMO as the practitioners may not participate with the same insurers or HMO as the center.
