Charges & Methods of PaymentServices provided by the Lakeshore Surgery Center are generally covered by most insurance plans. However, you should review your policy or check with your insurance representative before surgery. You should be aware that your surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist, and clinical laboratory will bill you or your insurance company separately from the Surgery Center bill. The Surgery Center bill covers the use of the operating room, nursing services, supplies, medications and any other materials used for your surgery. Please bring your insurance ID card with you on the day of the surgery Most insurance policies do not cover procedures that are considered to be medically unnecessary, such as certain types of cosmetic surgery. An arrangement for full payment prior to the surgery is required in these situations.
