Serving the Patients of “Suncoast Endoscopy of Sarasota”

Dear Endoscopy Patient:

The procedure you are about to have has 3 (three), possibly 4 (four) separately billable components with consist of:

  1. The professional services of your surgeon or gastroenterologist. Please refer to the Our Doctors page for billing information.
  2. The professional and medical services of the anesthesiologist/anesthetist are provided by an outside provider. Please call Suncoast Anesthesia Partners, LLC for billing information. Anesthesia is billed separately and is not part of the facility fee. Anesthesia may or may not be covered by your insurance plan.
  3. The facility fee (for use of the surgery center) includes estimated outpatient services, supplies, nursing care, and equipment use. Please call (941) 952-1145 if you have questions concerning facility charges.
  4. Pathology fees if you have polyps or biopsies removed. Pathology services are performed by Florida Digestive Health Specialists, 10920 Technology Terrace, Lakewood Ranch, FL 34275 or call (941) 757-4820.

Each of these entities is a separate company and cannot answer billing questions for the other, so please contact the appropriate company for your questions.

Anesthesia is a commonly covered component of your surgery. As a courtesy to you, the bills for your anesthesia services will be filed to your insurance company. We have accepted assignment of these benefits so your insurance company should send the payment directly to our office. If we have a secondary insurance on file, we will file a claim for the amount not paid by your primary insurance. If there is no secondary insurance on file, then we will send you a bill for the co-payment due as determined by your insurance company.

In the event that Anesthesia is not a participating anesthesia provider within your insurance plan, we will work with your insurance company to insure that you are not penalized for our non-participating (aka out-of-network) status. The maximum amount that you will owe will be your participating (aka in-network) benefit rates. Please contact our office if you have ANY concerns.

If your insurance company sends payment directly to you, you may either endorse the check OR write a personal check for the amount received and forward to the name and address listed above.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 1-888-337-3509
