Insurance and Billing
You will receive a bill for the services provided by the Surgical Center and all WellSpan providers. This covers the supplies, equipment, personnel, and use of the procedure/operating room and recovery rooms.
You will receive separate bills for the following:
- Your surgeon, dentist or podiatrist; (non-WellSpan).
- Anesthesia: If you received general anesthesia or required sedation administered by anesthesia personnel.
Billing for all WellSpan facilities and providers will be on one bill. As a convenience to you, our billing staff will make every effort to check your insurance coverage, based on the information that is given to us when scheduled. If our billing staff finds that you will be responsible for all or a portion of your bill, they may attempt to call you prior to your surgery. You may be given an estimate of any copayment or deductible your insurance company may require. Please be prepared to pay the copayments and deductibles on the day of the surgery. You are encouraged to contact your insurance company directly to find out about networks and what is covered by your plan. Any patients without insurance or whose insurance does not cover the procedure to be performed should also make arrangements to pay their facility fees on the day of the surgery. For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Payments may also be made online if you have an active My WellSpan account. We DO NOT accept Care Credit.
Regardless of the type of insurance you have, ultimate responsibility for the Surgical Center bill rests with the patient or guarantor. If your insurance company does not make payment within 60 days of submission, the account will become your responsibility, and payment in full will be required.
If you have any questions about your financial arrangements, you may contact WellSpan Customer Service at (717) 851-5005 or (877) 631-4262.
