Billing FAQs

Why am I receiving more than one bill for the same surgery?

Surgical procedures generally involve a number of separate charges, resulting in charges from several companies. Depending on your procedure, you might see charges from the following:


Posada Surgery Center – facility fee for your surgical procedure.
Your surgeon’s office – your doctor’s fee for performing the surgery.
Anesthesiologist – your doctor’s fee for administering anesthesia during your surgery.
Radiology – services for x-ray imaging, if these were required.
Pathology – services for tissue specimens that were removed during surgery and which require further examination.
Laboratory – services for laboratory tests run on specimens removed during surgery.

What type of credit cards do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and CareCredit.

When should I expect my first bill?

Posada Surgery Center will bill you the balance owed after your insurance company has paid your claim. Delays sometimes occur, for instance, if your insurance company has paid us the incorrect amount for your claim. In these cases, we will re-submit your claim for a corrected payment and allowance determination.

Do you charge interest?


Are we able to set up a payment plan?

Posada Surgery Center requires all balances to be paid in full within 45 days of your procedure. For payment plan options within that 45-day period, please speak to Posada Surgery Center staff before your procedure. If you encounter any issues paying for the bill within the 45-day time period, please contact our office immediately at 805-591-3344.

What is your payment policy?

Full payment is due within 45 days from your date of service. Please contact your insurance company directly if you experience any delays. You are responsible for guaranteeing payment on your account and being aware of your individual policy restrictions and benefits.
