Pricing Transparency Policy

Pricing Transparency Policy

Our foremost goal is to provide patients with high quality care, but we also want our patients to have a positive experience throughout their time at the surgery center. To make this process more transparent and help patients understand their personal out-of-pocket responsibility, Amelia Island Surgery Center will make available price quotes in advance of services being provided and in compliance with federal law.*

To obtain a price quote, please contact the surgery center Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at (904) 432-1521.  So that estimates are as accurate as possible, please provide:

– Detailed description of the procedure(s) being ordered by your physician,

– Your Physician’s name.

– And insurance information (if any), including insurance company name and phone number, policy holder name, policy number and group number located on the insurance card.

The surgery center estimate will provide you with the following:

– Patients with health insurance will be quoted an estimated amount that will be due to the surgery center based on the deductible, co-pay or co-insurance amounts established by their health insurance plan.

– Patients who do not have health insurance will be quoted an estimated amount that will be due to the surgery center that will include an uninsured discount to the estimate.

Estimates will not include any charges for physician fees such as a surgeon, pathologist, or anesthesiologist. These charges will be billed separately by the specific provider. Due to these factors, estimates are not exact and cannot be interpreted as a bill or exact cost for services. Instead, this service is offered to help simplify the financial aspect of surgery center visits so patients are able to focus on their healthcare.
