It is important for you to clearly understand what your insurance covers when you have surgery. If you are unsure, you should speak with the surgery scheduler before your procedure. If you do not have insurance, you may be eligible to finance your surgery through our Patient Accounting Office in Brookville, PA.
Please call and tell us that you need to arrange financing for your surgery. You can call toll free at 800-494-2020 or call the Brookville Business Office directly between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, at 814-849-8344.
Please give all related information about your medical insurance to the Patient Services Coordinator at the front desk when you check in for your surgery. Our Patient Accounting Department will file your claims when benefits are assigned to the Laurel Laser & Surgery Center. If your insurance plan does not include Laurel Laser & Surgery Center, or your insurance cannot be verified, payment will be due on the day of the procedure; otherwise your surgery will be rescheduled.
If you have medical insurance prior to the day of surgery, you will be asked to assign benefits to Laurel Laser & Surgery Center and to make a deposit for the amount that your insurance does not pay, such as co-payments, deductibles, co-insurance, and non-covered services; otherwise your surgery will be rescheduled
All patients are responsible for the cost and payment for services received at the Laurel Eye Clinic and at the Laurel Laser & Surgery Center. It is important to understand that the two facilities are separate and distinct from each other, and will bill you separately. As a courtesy service to you, we will bill your insurance company for you. However, you are responsible for the payment of all balances due on your account prior to your surgery.
