OPA's personal surgery schedulers work directly with patients and all parties involved to coordinate and schedule the various components of your surgery — and to help alleviate any concerns or uncertainty you may have.
The first step is getting preauthorization from your insurance company...
Understand the pre-authorization & billing process
- OPA will contact your insurance company to obtain prior authorization for surgeon and surgery assistant services only. You are responsible for confirming benefits for anesthesia and surgery facility services directly with your insurance company.
- If you have private insurance, the OPA surgical care team will provide you with a surgery cost estimate at the time of the appointment. Once verified, OPA will call you to discuss your insurance coverage and benefits, your estimated financial responsibility and any pre-surgery deposits that may be required.
- You will receive separate bills from separate companies for services related to your surgery:
- OPA surgeon and assistant surgeon
- Surgery facility
- Neuromonitoring during some spine surgeries
We advice our patients to also:
1. Contact your insurance carrier for your benefits and any additional information you may need from them.
2. Contact your surgery facility to discuss their financial expectations.
