Heartland Surgery Center Financial Policies & Fees

Financial Information:
You will receive separate bills from different providers involved with your surgery. Heartland Surgery Center charges do not include fees for your surgeon, anesthesia provider or other ancillary services such as laboratory, radiology or pathology.

Heartland Surgery Center is a preferred provider for many insurance plans:

CHI Tier 1 Medicare
Blue Cross Blue Shield Kansas Medicaid
Coventry/Aetna Healthcare Nebraska Medicaid/Medicaid Managed Care
HealthNet Federal Services (Formally Humana VA) Ohara, LLC. (Workers' Comp)
Humana ChoiceCare Tricare
Midlands Choice UnitedHealthCare

We will file claims to your insurance company and do all that we can to assist you. It is important that you understand the benefits and the requirements of your policy. Some insurance companies require pre-authorization by the physician before surgery. Please review the requirements of your policy and verify that this process has been completed.

Ultimately, you are responsible for understanding your benefits, the terms of your policy and are responsible for the balance of your account.

You can expect a statement from us after we have heard from your insurance company. We appreciate payment in full within 30 days. Interest is accrued at 16% APR (1.33% per month) on balances over 60 days old. If a patient/responsible party makes payments of $50 or more every 30 days, interest charges will be deferred. For your convenience, we accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover & American Express. If you require financial assistance or have questions related to insurance and billing, please contact HSC at 308-865-2670 and ask for patient accounts.

Auto Insurance:
If you have been injured in an auto accident, portions of your bill maybe covered by the auto insurance carrier.
Please contact our billing department at 308-865-2670 regarding claim information that may be needed to submit your claim.

Workers' Compensation:
Heartland Surgery Center obtains authorization for surgical services before the procedure takes place. We will submit a claim to the workers' compensation carrier on your behalf.

If you are covered under Medicaid (Nebraska or Kansas) a claim will be submitted for you. We will not send any statements to you unless there is a required copay for services.
