We strive to keep our fees reasonable and stay committed to providing the most cost effective services for our patients. Insurance companies’ current payments levels are less than 25% of what they paid 10 years ago in spite of tripling and quadrupling your premiums in the same time frame. Consequently, like many other clinics, we elected to drop most insurance plans. We can still bill your insurance company and obtain payment on your behalf. Depending on your deductible in and out of network, you may have a balance after the insurance payment.
Contrary to what your insurer may tell you to steer you to the surgeon who provides steep write-offs for them, (in-network) any balance for the surgery is in most cases very manageable. Surgery is not about the lowest price but about the best results. That is why only Dr. Grischkan performs the surgery, not trainees, medical students or surgical technicians. You cannot afford to make the wrong choice when choosing a surgeon, as the consequences are lifelong.
For patients with no insurance, high deductibles or plans that offer little in the way of reimbursement, we can offer a steeply discounted global package. This is a heavily discounted bundled fee that is all-inclusive for the operating room, anesthesia and surgeon’s fee. Hospitals and many clinics will add thousands of dollars to the agreed upon price if the surgery takes longer or is more complex. We never do that-the price agreed to is what you pay no matter how long or complex the procedure takes.
While you may find some clinics offering a lower cost, they cannot match the expertise and world class results that has attracted patients to the Hernia Center of Ohio from all over the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Canada, Mexico and South America. Moreover, they would not be experts with 35 years of experience performing the Shouldice NON MESH repair.
If you have a hernia call the Hernia Center of Ohio at 216-591-1422 and discover just how affordable expert surgery is.
