Facility Billing Information
Facility billing is different than physician billing and includes a number of services that are included in a global fee that is sent to your insurance company. Your global facility fee includes the following services:
- Use of the endoscopy suite and the associated endoscopic equipment
- Nursing services provided during your procedure
- Medications, to include the sedation/anesthesia
- Medical supplies
- Administrative services
By utilizing a free standing Endoscopy Center, the associated fees and charges that are billed to your insurance company are traditionally much less than the charges and fees that are billed by a hospital based surgery center. If you have any questions about facility billing, please contact our professional billing staff at (520) 382-1145 and they will gladly assist you.
