We make every effort to contact you prior to surgery regarding your financial responsibility. However, if we fail to reach you within 48 hours of your surgery please call us at: (703) 691-0670 ext. 254. Patients with verified insurance will be required to pay ONLY their portion on the day of surgery. Note: In the event that your benefits are covered at 100% we will NOT contact you.
Fairfax Surgical Center will bill your insurance company on your behalf as a courtesy. However, if your insurance company does not pay your claim within 60-days, the total charges will become your full responsibility. Please be assured that we will pursue payment from your insurance company and will keep you informed of the status of your claim. Please note also that we do not bill for professional services such as the Surgeon, Anesthesiologist, Radiologist, and Pathologist. Expect to receive separate bills from these professionals for services rendered by them.
To ensure proper filing of claims, please bring valid insurance cards with you on the date of surgery.
We also have an Uninsured Discount Program that is designed for uninsured or underinsured patients who do not qualify for Medicaid, charity care, or any other discount programs offered at our center. All patients will receive the Uninsured Discount unless they qualify for a Charity Discount. These patients receive a bill that reflects a discount from total charges.
Uninsured or underinsured patients will be required to pay for services on the date of surgery. Our Financial Counselor will review your financial obligation prior to the date of surgery. We accept cash, personal check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express to assist you in paying for your services.
In the event that any of the above options cannot be met, the Surgical Center will attempt to make other financial arrangements prior to admission. Patients, who have no known or visible means of income and/or meet financial hardship guidelines per current Federal Poverty Guideline, will be eligible for charity adjustment. See our charity care policy under Community Support on this website. Patients can request information regarding this policy from our Financial Counselor.
