Payment and Fees
The total cost of care at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence is determined by adding together the costs of multiple services. For instance, a facility fee is charged for every procedure performed at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence’s outpatient surgery center. There are also fees for the surgeon, consulting physician, and anesthesiologist, as well as lab work and pathology that is required. Fees will vary depending on the surgery performed.
Patients with insurance are required to pay their estimated deductible and co-payments before undergoing surgery. We can accept personal checks (for co-pay ONLY), cash, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Our billing department then bills your insurance provider for you.
Benefits of Outpatient Surgery
There are many factors that go into determining where to go for a medical procedure, one of which is the quality of care. Here at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence, we offer personalized treatment performed by world-renowned surgeons in a safe, controlled environment.
Our state-of-the-art technology and surgical techniques allow us to perform many traditionally inpatient procedures in an outpatient manner, and since overnight hospital stays can be quite pricey, our services are often more cost effective than those of a hospital.
Patients at the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence are less likely to contract an infection during their procedure than at a hospital because we only provide elective, non-emergency medical services. This also means that our patients do not have long wait times. In addition, our surgeons work alongside the same nurses every day, which means surgery is efficient; that efficiency translates into less time under anesthesia for the patient. These are just some of the reasons that the Knee Surgery Center of Excellence in Los Angeles is the “go-to” surgery center in the area.
