Our surgery center is an approved facility for many health insurance plans. Patients whose procedures are not fully covered by their insurance plans must make financial arrangements to cover the cost prior to the day of the procedure. Some plans require certain procedures and/or physicians to be approved in advance, or they may not authorize coverage. Please contact your insurance company to ask if a pre-authorization is required before having an outpatient procedure/surgery performed at Madison Surgery Center. Cases that have not completed the prior authorization process will be rescheduled.
About Your Bill
Madison Surgery Center works hard at maintaining a rigorous program of cost containment to assure high-quality health care at a competitive rate. Our facility charges are billed separately from the laboratory fees and the fees of our physicians (surgeons, proceduralists, anesthesiologists).
Madison Surgery Center charges include the costs associated with the procedure/operating rooms, recovery room, nursing staff, medical-surgical supplies, and pharmaceuticals. The University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation (UW Health) is our managing partner and sends out billing information on behalf of Madison Surgery Center. Please be aware that "UW Health" is the name used for billing and collection services. You will also receive a separate bill for the physician and laboratory charges from UW Health.
