Billing Practices

Lowry Surgery Center's policy is to bill the patient's insurance company for facility charges. Lowry Surgery Center will also collect any co-payments, co-insurance or deductibles at the time of surgery. The responsible party will be billed for any charges the insurance company does not cover, including co-payments, deductibles and co-insurance.

Additionally, the responsible party will be billed for Facility charges in full should the insurance company deny coverage due to lack of referral, no pre-authorization, lack of proper reporting of incident/accident or lack of individual coverage, where applicable.

PLEASE NOTE: It is the patient's responsibility to understand their individual insurance benefits.

Collection Activity

Any account balances(s) that are not paid by 90 days from the date of service may be forwarded to a collection agency. Lowry Surgery Center may also forward to a collection agency prior to 90 days from the date of service if deemed necessary by the Surgery Center. Should litigation be necessary to collect an amount owed, the responsible party agrees to pay all costs of collections including, but not limited to, collection fees, attorney fees, interest and court costs.
