The Bedford Ambulatory Surgical Center will bill your insurance company or the responsible party for your services separately from your surgeon, the anesthesiologist (if required for your surgery), and pathology or laboratory charges, if a specimen or sample was taken. We accept most insurance plans, including Medicare*. You will be billed for any amount determined to be your responsibility, such as deductibles and co-pays. We accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover to assist you in paying for your services. To ensure proper filing of claims, please bring valid insurance cards with you on the date of surgery.
Medicare and Medicaid are not accepted for Imaging Services rendered at BASC Imaging.
It is your responsibility to satisfy the conditions of your insurance plan; therefore, we strongly recommend that you contact your insurance carrier to confirm benefits and any requirements prior to surgery (such as pre-authorization). It is your responsibility to verify that your insurance plan covers our facility services.
Our center cannot be held responsible for claims denied for failure to meet specific requirements on your behalf. Patients undergoing cosmetic procedures, or patients who are undergoing “non-covered services” (as determined by your insurance carrier) must pre-pay in full by making arrangements with our billing department. Cash, major credit cards, and cashiers checks are accepted, however payment cannot be made by personal check.
In the event that any of the above options cannot be met, the surgical center will make every attempt to assist with other financial arrangements prior to surgery. Patients who experience financial hardship, according to current Federal Poverty Guidelines
, may apply for charity adjustments. Applications must be made prior to surgery. Patients can request information regarding this policy by calling and asking to speak with a billing department representative.
It is your right as a patient to request information or have questions answered regarding fees or payment policies. If you have any questions or problems regarding your bill, please contact our billing department, and our staff will be happy to assist you.
