By not accepting insurance and its complicated rules and expenses, we make routine care more affordable and put healthcare decision-making back in your hands.The prices listed on this website for outpatient treatment centers commonly include the facility fee, the surgeon’s fee, the anesthesiologist’s fee (if needed) and pathology (if needed) as well as uncomplicated follow-up care. The duration of included postoperative care is different for each surgical procedure. Your provider should inform you at the initial visit as to the amount of postoperative care that is covered by the price paid.A list of what is NOT included in the fee you paid is as follows:
- Any additional tests or treatments based on the provider's findings at the initial or follow up visits.

The cost of any hardware or implants will be provided to you at invoice cost without any markup whatsoever. Copies of the invoices will be provided to you.
