How long are price quotes valid?
All quoted prices are valid for 60 days. If your employer is contracted with us, the quotes are good for one year.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, cashier’s check, and all major credit cards. If your employer has a direct contract with us, we will receive payment directly from your employer. All other scenarios will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
Can payment arrangements be made?
In general, no. Payment in full is required at the time service is rendered, or we must have a current agreement in place with your TPA or self-insured employer. Part of the reason we’re able to offer prices that are so affordable is by reducing billing complexity.
Can I stay overnight in the facility?
Overnight stays are usually not necessary, but arrangements can be made for post-operative stays. Certain procedures will have the cost of an overnight stay included in the price.
