Preparing For Surgery

Ambulatory Surgical Pavilion of NJ

Transparency in Healthcare

In accordance with the New Jersey Out of Network Law, the facility is required to let you know that some services associated with your staff may be provided on an out of network basis.

Please know that you must inquire separately with your physician and associated providers to find out if they are out of network. Your surgeon and other health care providers not limited to but as example anesthesiologists, intraoperative monitoring services, durable medical suppliers, and anatomical pathologists may provide services to you at the facility that are not a part of facility’s fees. If any of their services are provided to you while being a patient of facility, the provider(s) will bill separately for their services rendered.

Patients and prospective patients may request from this facility and other health care providers a more personalized estimate of charges and other information including specific contact information prior to service. A list of facility charges by procedure are available upon request at the surgery center.

Patients and prospective patients should contact each health care practitioner who will provide services in the facility or as an external service to determine the health insurers and health maintenance organizations with which the health care practitioner participates as a network provider or preferred provider. The patient and the their provider(s) are responsible to elect and determine which services, diagnostics, and planned procedures will be authorized to perform based on their intended payment plan and policies. The facility’s billing office are always available as resources for the patient pre-procedure for assistance.

Please contact the facility directly for guidance at +1 609-878-3348 during regular business hours for assistance. Questions related to financial assistance, payment plans, charity care policy, and collection procedures are always welcomed and encouraged if they arise.
