Thank you for choosing Sarasota Ambulatory Surgical Center for your surgery. We strive to make your experience a pleasant and efficient one.
With that in mind, we like to inform our patients of their financial obligations prior to surgery, so there are no surprises and/or misunderstandings.
The Sarasota Ambulatory Surgical Center collects any co-payments, unmet deductibles, and co-insurance amounts on the day of surgery. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or contact our office at 941-870-1872. Please note that co-insurance amounts collected are an estimate; your total financial obligation will be determined by your insurance company and will appear on the explanation of benefits. If our estimated amount is less, we will bill you the difference. If our estimated amount is more, we will refund you the difference.
We encourage you to also contact your surgeon, anesthesia group and your insurance company if you have any questions about your financial obligations. In addition, please make sure your authorization/pre-certification for your surgery is on file prior to the surgery.
You will be receiving a bill from:

If you do not have insurance, you are responsible for the entire surgeon, facility and anesthesia fees. You will need to arrange payment with each entity separately.
We will call you prior to surgery with the amount due on the day of surgery. Checks should be made payable to Sarasota Ambulatory Surgical Center. We accept cash, check Visa and Mastercard. We will leave a message on your home phone in order to make sure you have this information. As a reminder, you are still responsible for any balance left by your insurance company(ies). If you have other financial questions, please feel free to call us at 941-870-1872.
