We predicted this: Prices posted online by a surgical center in Oklahoma.
“The prices for the procedures below include the facility fee, the surgeon’s fee and the anesthesiologist’s fee. The initial consultation with the surgeon is also included, as is uncomplicated follow-up care. The duration of postoperative care is different for each surgical procedure. Therefore, your surgeon will inform you at the initial consultation the amount of postoperative care covered by the price. The $200 initial consultation fee is applied to the total cost of the procedure should surgery be indicated. If surgery is not indicated the $200 will be retained by us. Our goal is for the price to be as transparent as possible.”
This comes courtesy of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, at the forefront of transparency.
“If you have a high deductible or are part of a self-insured plan at a large company, you owe it to yourself or your business to take a look at our facility and pricing which is listed on this site. If you are considering a trip to a foreign country to have your surgery, you should look here first. Finally, if you have no insurance at all, this facility will provide quality and pricing that we believe are unmatched.”
Prices are not negotiable and apply only if paid in advance. If you’re scheduled for surgery and the center is filing insurance claims, these charges don’t apply.
