About Your Bill

Financial Policies and Information

Peak One Surgery Center recognizes health insurance terminology can be confusing.  This section is for information purposes only and is not to be considered insurance advice. For specific questions, patients should contact their insurance carrier.

When the staff from Peak One Surgery Center contact you to confirm your appointment, they will discuss the financial aspect of the surgery including the patient payment required at the time of service and/or before a patient arrives at Peak One Surgery Center.  We provide a convenient online bill pay system to assist in developing a payment plan.   Please bring a credit card or other method of payment with you to your surgical appointment.

Billing and Payment Policies

The insurance and billing process can be confusing.  Each person’s plan can vary from one patient to the next with each plan having its own benefits or exclusions.

It is your responsibility to contact your insurance company to verify your participating provider network.  You should also be aware of the specific benefits or exclusions that pertain to your plan.   The customer service number for your insurance carrier can be found on your ID card.

After we receive your scheduling and insurance information from your physician’s office, Peak One Surgery Center will contact your insurance carrier and verify eligibility and medical benefits for services at our ambulatory surgery center.   If a co-pay or deductible payment is required you will be contacted by our office.  This payment is due on or before the date of service.   Failure to resolve payment issues prior to your date of surgery could result in the postponement of your surgery.   We accept cash, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover payments.  A check is accepted if the amount is $500 or less. Amounts over $500 must be in the form of a cashier’s check or money order.

If Peak One Surgery Center does not participate in your insurance plan, you may still be able to receive services here if you have “out of network” benefits.  However, since your insurance company will consider our services as “out of network”, you may be responsible for paying more of the bill.

If you are not a resident of the United States payment is due at the time service is rendered.

Preparing for Your Visit

Please bring these items with you to the ambulatory surgery center:

  • insurance cards;
  • valid driver’s license or state identification card;
  • payment for your co-pay, deductible, and any services that are not covered by your health insurance plan

Self-Pay

Self-pay patients are expected to pay in full prior to any scheduled service. Where possible, we will estimate the required payment when you schedule your service. Please contact our business office directly at 970-668-1458 for price estimates.

Physician Bills

You will receive separate bills from the physicians (surgeons, anesthesiologists, etc.) involved in your care. If you have questions or concerns about those bills, call the physician’s office or the customer service telephone number on your insurance card.

Keeping Records

It’s your responsibility to ensure that your health benefit plan meets its obligations to you and pays everything it should. An important step in doing that is to keep every healthcare (and physician) bill you receive. Likewise, keep all the documentation sent by your health insurance plan. In this way, you can compare the payments made by your insurance company against your health benefit plan.

Healthcare Terms

Deductible: The amount you owe for health care services before your health insurance or plan begins to pay. For example, if your deductible is $1,000, your plan won’t pay anything until you have met your $1,000 deductible for covered health care services subject to the deductible. The deductible may not apply to all services.

Co-pay: A fixed amount (for example, $25) you pay for a covered health care service, upon receipt of  the service. The amount can vary by the type of covered health care service received.

Patient balance: The amount of money a patient owes after insurance is billed for services.  This amount reflects the total fee allowance (contracted rate) minus the amount the insurance company paid for the services.  If there is a difference between the billed fee and the allowed (contracted) rate, this amount is written off by the health care provider.
