In the days before your procedure, a representative from our business office will contact you to discuss your insurance coverage and financial responsibilities to Northeast Surgery Center for the facility fees associated with your scheduled procedure. This conversation may cover co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance payments, etc. Please do not hesitate to ask for clarification on any of these matters during this phone conversation or at any time prior to your procedure. Please be advised, you may also receive a similar call from your surgeon’s office in regards to the actual surgeon fees for your scheduled procedure.
Also, expect a call from our nursing department a day before your scheduled procedure to discuss pre-operative preparation and to answer any questions you may have regarding your procedure. During this call, we will verify you registered online and give any special instructions, arrival time and estimated discharge time. If you receive sedation or anesthesia, our policies ask that you arrange for a responsible adult to take you home from the center. Your designated adult driver should be on hand to help you receive post-procedure instructions, take you home and be available to you overnight after your surgery. For your safety, you will not be permitted to drive yourself home after receiving sedation or anesthesia. Please understand patients will not be permitted to take a taxi or other public transportation unless accompanied by a responsible adult.
To schedule or cancel a procedure, please call your surgeon’s office as they will make the arrangements.
