It is very common for patients to have questions regarding cost, billing, and insurance for services at the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence. It is often difficult to make sense of the various insurance companies and the treatments they cover, so we would like to help simplify this process for you. Here at the Joint Surgery Center, we accept Aetna, Cigna, Health Net, and United health insurance, but do frequently work with patients outside these plans, and offer competitive cash pricing.

Please contact our office at (888) 318-2842 if you have any questions or concerns about insurance or billing for a procedure at our surgery center. We also suggest you contact us to confirm your insurance before your appointment so that we can provide you with a personalized coverage assessment.

Insurance Accepted at the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence

The Joint Surgery Center of Excellence in Los Angeles accepts all PPO health insurance plans (Preferred Provider Organizations). We will happily work with your insurance provider to verify your coverage. PPOs are among the most popular insurance plans because they generally provide a great deal of freedom in allowing you to select a healthcare provider. We accept PPO plans including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Aetna
  • United
  • Cigna
  • Health Net

We do offer a competitive cash price for all of our patients without health insurance and our billing department will work with you to arrange a payment plan.

Fees and Payments

The cost of care at the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence often involves multiple services that are factored into the total cost. For every surgery performed at our outpatient surgery center, the Joint Surgery Center of Excellence must charge a facility fee. The facility fee is in addition to the fees for the surgeon, consulting doctor, and anesthesiologist. Pathology and lab work is usually required as well. Fees will vary depending on the procedure performed and condition being treated.

All patients are responsible for the cost of their procedure. Patients with insurance must pay their deductible and co-payments before surgery. The Joint Surgery Center of Excellence accepts cash, personal checks (for co-pay ONLY), VISA, MasterCard, Discover Card, and American Express. We will then bill your insurance provider on your behalf.

Advantages of Outpatient Surgery

The Joint Surgery Center of Excellence provides patients with high-quality, personalized treatment in a safe environment and state-of-the-art facility. This type of quality care is important when choosing a treatment facility.

Our expert physicians, state-of-the-art technology, and unique surgery center structure allow us to perform many procedures on an outpatient basis that typically require an inpatient hospital stay at other centers. Overnight hospital stays can be very expensive; therefore, many of our patients find our services to be comparable to, even less expensive than, those of a standard hospital.

The Joint Surgery Center of Excellence is a voluntary, non-emergency surgical facility, which means our patients rarely experience the long delays common at hospitals. They are also much less likely to become ill or contract an infection while in our surgery center. Because our surgeons work with the same assistants and nurses every day, our surgeries are much more efficient, meaning the procedures are shorter and patients are under anesthesia for a shorter amount of time.
