Insurance and Billing

​Financial Information

As a courtesy to our patients, we will bill your insurance company when provided with the necessary information. Please realize that your policy is a contract between you and the insurance company. Any required co-payments, deductibles or non-covered services are beyond our control and your subsequent responsibility.
Patients will receive a pre-op phone call from the business office to review their insurance coverage and financial responsibilities due at the time of surgery. At that time, patients will be informed of any co-pay or deductible that is due on the day of surgery. Co-payment and deductibles must be paid at the time of admission. If an overpayment is made on the account, you will receive a refund.
After your insurance company has remitted payment to us, you may be responsible for any balance unpaid by your insurance company. Method of payments accepted are cash, money order, cashier’s check or major credit cards. If special payment arrangements are necessary, please call the center prior to your surgery.
If you have any additional concerns or questions, please call the office at (763) 447-4310.

Pavilion Surgery Center accepts most major insurance and managed care plans. 
The Pavilion Surgery Center only charges for the use of the facility and for the services of the Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).  As a courtesy, Pavilion Surgery Center will file health insurance claims.  This service does not relieve the patient of any responsibility to pay the Pavilion Surgery Center for services rendered.   This includes services, which, for any reason, are not paid by insurance, government programs or other third party sources. Any self-pay portion of my bill is due upon receipt of a statement.  If you have questions on your bill or need to discuss payment options please call 218-279-6200 and ask to speak to the Business Office.  

The fees and charges for the surgeon, anesthesiologist, pathology, radiology, and any other health care provider or services are charged separately from the Pavilion Surgery Center.
