Your insurance company will be contacted for surgery approval.  Every effort will be used to confirm insurance verification, but it is in your best interest to check with your insurance company that the PHYSICIAN, SURGERY FACILITY AND ANESTHESIA GROUP are contacting (This will ensure your highest level of benefits).  You will be billed separately for physician, facility, anesthesia and possible pathology/lab.

If you have any insurance questions or if there is a change in insurance, please contact the business office at 620-845-6492.
