Valley Orthopedic Associates encourages patients to contact their insurance provider directly to confirm benefits and coverage, including anesthesia coverage for any surgical procedure. VOA will bill your insurance provider for any services. Patients are responsible for any unpaid portion of a bill.
Pre-payment is required for elective surgical procedures. The VOA authorization department will contact your insurance provider to obtain authorization for any surgical procedure. Benefits quoted by your insurance provider are used, along with Proliance Surgeons, Inc. fees, to estimate a total cost. VOA is a service of Proliance Surgeons, Inc. The estimate generally includes the services of:
- Your orthopedic physician
- An assistant if one is needed
- The facility (VOA Ambulatory Surgery Center)
The estimate does not include anesthesia fees for surgery, or hospital costs if the surgery takes place at Valley Medical Center rather than VOA Ambulatory Surgery Center.
One-third of the total cost is due prior to scheduling your surgery. The remaining balance is due within 60 days of surgery. If this is not possible, payments can be arranged for the remaining balance.
If you do not have insurance, a five percent discount will be applied and a financial agreement will need to be signed.
Please contact the VOA financial (bookkeeping) department with any questions at 425-291-1414.
