Billing Information

Below you will find useful information regarding the billing you will receive after you have had surgery at Ohio Orthopedic Surgery Institute. You should expect to receive 3 separate billings related to your surgery:

Ohio Orthopedic Surgery Institute: This is the fee for the use of the surgery facility which includes, for example, costs for your pre-operative and post- operative care, nursing care, IV’s, medications received while in the Prep Room prior to your surgery and in the Recovery Room after your surgery, the Operating Room Suite, nursing care while in surgery, medical equipment used, any supplies used in surgery such as sutures, ace bandages/wraps, etc., and the costs associated for the overall facility. The Ohio Orthopedic Surgery Institute bills by the procedures that are performed, NOT by the amount of time you are in surgery. If you have any questions regarding this bill, feel free to call (614) 827-8777 and ask for the Billing Dept.

Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence: This is the fee your surgeon charges for his services for performing the surgery. This will be billed by his/her office. If you have any questions regarding this bill, feel free to call (614) 827-8700 and ask for the Billing Dept.

MidWest Physician’s Anesthesia: This is the fee for Anesthesiology Services. This is for any anesthesia given to you during your surgery. You will not receive a bill for anesthesia if you had a straight local anesthesia administered by your Physician. If you have questions regarding this bill, feel free to call (614) 884-0641 or 866-300-6019 and ask for the Billing Dept.

Even though your Surgeon and the Ohio Orthopedic Surgery Institute are housed in the same building, they are two separate entities and have separate billing and staff.

Prior to your day of surgery, the staff at the Ohio Orthopedic Surgery Institute has verified your coverage and benefits with your insurance company.

It usually takes approximately 30-45 days for your insurance company to pay your claim. If there is a patient balance due after your insurance company has paid, the Ohio Orthopedic Surgery Institute will bill you. Although payment is preferred and expected, when you receive your first bill, we will, if necessary, work with you to establish a reasonable payment plan until your balance is paid in full.
