Northwest Surgical Specialists is committed to providing the highest level of quality medical care and personal service to our patients. We feel it is the patient or the guardians’ responsibility to meet their financial obligations.
As we see patients from many different insurance plans, it is impossible for us to know all the covered benefits, co-pays and deductibles for each plan. In addition, your insurance company will not guarantee payment to us. While it is our intention to assist, it is still your responsibility to ensure that all services rendered are paid in full. In order to clarify Northwest Surgical Specialists’ Financial Policy, we have listed below our financial requirements:
You, the patient or the patient’s guarantor, are ultimately responsible for all charges associated with your care regardless of insurance coverage.
Co-payments and Deductibles are a contract responsibility between the patient and their insurance. These amounts are non-negotiable.

If you cannot pay at the time of service, we may ask that your appointment be rescheduled.
