The bills a patient will receive for surgery and the cost of the surgery will depend primarily on the following items. You will likely receive separate bills for each.

  1. Texas Pediatric Surgery Center fee for the type of procedure. This fee includes nursing care, medications, standard supplies, and use of the operating and recovery rooms.
  2. The surgeon’s fee for performing the surgery
  3. The Anesthesiologist’s fee for providing anesthesia for the procedure, if applicable

Depending on the procedure performed, patients also may receive bills for laboratory or x-ray tests prior to the procedure or bills from other care providers such as pathologist, radiologist and/or surgical assistants.

Payment

We require payment of your deductible, co-payment, and co-insurance at the time of admission. We accept cash, checks, debit, all major credit cards, and Care Credit. For procedures that are not covered by insurance and for patients who do not have medical insurance, we require full payment (100%) at the time of admission. Please call our office prior to your surgery date if special payment arrangements are necessary.

Insurance

Many same-day surgical procedures are covered by standard medical insurance and we participate with many insurance plans. However, you should call your insurance company prior to your surgery date to verify that we participate with your plan and to understand the coverage for your procedure. As a courtesy prior to the date of surgery, Texas Pediatric Surgery Center will verify patient insurance coverage and benefits for patients and will make every effort to communicate this information to the Responsible Party before the surgery date.
