Q. Why did I receive three bills?
A. For most surgeries there is a facility fee (PSC), surgeon’s fee (your surgeon) and an anesthesia fee. This occurs whether your surgery is performed at a hospital or a surgery center. We will only collect the facility fee, you will receive separate bills from your surgeon and anesthesiologist.

Q. What is an EOB?
EOB stands for ” Explanation of Benefits”. Health insurers send an Explanation of Benefits, or EOB, to their covered members after they or other family members receive healthcare services. THIS IS NOT A BILL. If you receive an EOB, bring it into your surgeon’s office, and they can review it with you.
