Charges associated with services provided at Illinois Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Surgery Center (ISMOSC) will consist of a facility fee for the patient’s use of the Pre-Op area, the Operating Room and the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (Recovery Room). Self-pay patients may also be charged for certain single-use implants and/or surgical supplies.
Prior to your surgery date, you will be notified by ISMOSC of your insurance benefit co-pay and/or patient estimate coverage and the amount of your co-pay and/or patient estimate, if applicable. If a co-pay and/or patient estimate applies, you will be expected to pay this amount either prior to or on the day of surgery. We accept cash, cashier’s checks, money orders and both Visa and MasterCard, with credit card approval obtained on the date of payment.
Because of the large number of health insurance plans, we suggest that you contact your insurance carrier if you have any specific questions regarding your individual coverage.
After your surgery, ISMOSC will submit a claim to your insurance carrier for the facility fee only. ISMOSC will subsequently receive payment from your insurance carrier and you will receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB). ISMOSC will credit your account with this insurance payment. If there is a balance due from deductible and/or co-insurance, you will receive a statement from ISMOSC. Payment will be expected within 30 days of receipt of the statement.
Please note that the surgery center bill does not include the services of your surgeon, anesthesiologist, pathologist or any durable medical equipment provided post-operatively.
It is your right as a patient to request information or have questions answered regarding facility fees or payment policies. If you have any questions regarding your bill, please contact our Billing Office at 866.787.4426 EXT 103. We will be available to assist you Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 AM and 3:30 PM.
