Please realize charges for your procedure at PrecisionCare Surgery Center are separate from your surgeon’s charge as well as any anesthesiologist* and/or pathologist charges which may be incurred.
If your procedure is not covered by insurance, full payment is required at the time of service unless other arrangements are made in advance.
Patients – or their legal guardians – are ultimately responsible for payment of facility services at Precision Care Surgery Center. As a courtesy, Precision Care Surgery Center will bill your primary and secondary insurance carriers for you. Please bring your insurance cards with you on the day of surgery.

Such co-payments may include deductibles, co-insurance or any non-covered items identified by your insurance plan.

Copayment, deductible, and coinsurance are terms commonly used in health insurance to describe the financial responsibilities of policyholders when receiving healthcare services. Each of these terms represents a different aspect of how costs are shared between the insurance company and the insured individual.
A copayment, often referred to as a “co-pay,” is a fixed, predetermined amount of money that an individual must pay out-of-pocket at the time of receiving specific healthcare services, such as a doctor’s visit or prescription medication.
Copayments are typically stated as a specific dollar amount (e.g., $20 for a primary care doctor’s visit) and are due regardless of the total cost of the service. Insurance plans use copayments to help share the cost of healthcare expenses between the policyholder and the insurance company.
A deductible is the initial amount of money that a policyholder must pay out-of-pocket for covered healthcare services before their insurance plan starts to pay a portion of the expenses.
Deductibles are usually specified as an annual amount (e.g., $1,000 per year). Until the policyholder meets or exceeds this deductible by paying for eligible medical expenses, they are responsible for the full cost of those services. After the deductible is met, the insurance plan typically covers a percentage of the remaining costs.
Coinsurance is the percentage of healthcare costs that the policyholder is responsible for paying after meeting their deductible. Unlike copayments, which are fixed amounts, coinsurance represents a percentage of the total cost of covered services.
For example, if an insurance plan has a 20% coinsurance requirement and the total cost of a covered medical procedure is $1,000, the policyholder would be responsible for paying $200 (20% of $1,000), while the insurance company would cover the remaining $800.
Coinsurance helps share the cost of healthcare expenses beyond the deductible between the insurance company and the insured individual.
In summary, copayments involve fixed out-of-pocket payments for specific healthcare services, deductibles are the initial amount a policyholder must pay before insurance coverage kicks in, and coinsurance represents the percentage of costs shared between the policyholder and the insurance company after the deductible is met. These terms are important for individuals to understand when choosing and using health insurance plans.
