Billing and Insurance
Our staff at the Southern New Mexico Surgery Center realize just how confusing, frustrating, and time-consuming medical billing can be! Navigating through insurance company EOB's (Explanation of Benefits), co-payments, deductibles, physician office statements, and facility fees is not a fun way to spend your day. To make the task easier, we offer this guide to medical billing for the services you have received at the Southern New Mexico Surgery Center.
You will receive the following categories of statements:
The Surgery Center facility bill represents charges for your services at our center. The bill does not include fees for your surgeon, anesthesia provider, or pathology services. These entities bill for their own services separately.
Co-Payments & Deductibles
Your insurance may require you to provide co-payments for your procedure and require that your deductible be met before receiving additional benefits. Prior to your surgery, the Southern New Mexico Surgery Center will verify your insurance coverage and contact you to inform you of your co-payment and deductible responsibilities. We require co-payments and payment of deductibles at the time of service. We accept cash, check, and credit cards. A direct link for patient payments has been included on the SNMSC website. You are able to pay online utilizing the patient payment box located in the right column in a green box labeled "patient payments".
If you are not covered by insurance, we will require payment in full prior to your procedure. We will contact you prior to your procedure to inform you of the facility fee and facilitate payment arrangements.
Out of Network
If your insurance company sends their facility fee check directly to you, we ask that you call our business office and send the check to our facility within five days.
Surgeon or Treating Physician
Your surgeon or treating physician will provide you with their own statement covering their professional services. Please contact the surgeon/physician office to discuss billing issues.
