Transparency in Healthcare

In accordance with Florida law, the facility is required to let you know that you may or may not pay less for the services at another facility or in another health care setting. Please know that your attending doctor who booked your procedure(s) at the facility may not be on the medical staff of such other facilities or health care settings. Furthermore, your attending physician who booked your procedures to be done at facility, and other health care providers not limited to but as example anesthesiologists, intraoperative monitoring services, durable medical suppliers, and anatomical pathologists may provide services to you at the facility that are not a part of facility’s fees. If any of their services are provided to you while being a patient of facility, the provider(s) will bill separately for their services rendered.

Patients and prospective patients may request from this facility and other health care providers a more personalized estimate of charges and other information including specific contact information prior to service.

Patients and prospective patients should contact each health care practitioner who will provide services in the facility or as an external service to determine the health insurers and health maintenance organizations with which the health care practitioner participates as a network provider or preferred provider. Please see the list of providers associated with Gladiolus Surgery Center. The patient and the their provider(s) are responsible to elect and determine which services, diagnostics, and planned procedures will be authorized to perform based on their intended payment plan and policies.
