Thank you for choosing Premier Surgeons. We are committed to providing you with the best possible care, and will help you receive your maximum allowable insurance benefits. However, we need your assistance and your understanding of our payment policy. Your insurance contract is between you, your employer and the insurance company; we are not a party to that contract. Not all services are covered by all contracts.
We participate and accept from most major payers, which means covered charges, will be paid directly to us. As a courtesy to you, we will file a claim with your insurance carrier on your behalf. Any remaining balance will be billed to you once we have received remittance from your insurance carrier.
If your plan requires a referral from your Primary Care Physician, it is your responsibility to obtain it before seeking treatment from us. If a claim is denied due to lack of referral you will be responsible for the charges.
We accept cash or checks, and for your convenience, Visa, MasterCard or Discover. We encourage you to promptly contact our billing company, Aspen Medical Management, for assistance in the management of your account. They can be reached at (719) 576-4171.
Outpatient surgical procedures may be performed in the hospital operating suite or a surgicenter. You will receive charges from the hospital or surgicenter for the use of the facility plus a separate bill from Dr. Vazquez for his professional services.
In the event that you require an operative procedure, the office will bill your insurance company for professional services only. If the insurance company has not made payment within sixty days from the date of operation, the balance becomes the patient’s responsibility. For your convenience, the office accepts Visa, Mastercard, and the Discover card. Any balance outstanding after 90 days is automatically forwarded to our collection service unless prior arrangements have been made.
Questions about your hospital/surgicenter bill should be directed to the hospital/surgicenter billing department. Questions regarding surgicenter bills should first be directed to their billing department and brought to Dr. Vazquez’s attention if problems persist.
Questions about bills for professional services rendered by Dr. Vazquez, please call312-649-6562 extension 101.
