 Insurance and Billing



Fees charged by Lakeshore Surgicare are in addition to your surgeon and/or anesthesia provider fees.



You may be contacted by a Patient Accounts Representative before your surgery to go over any relevant insurance information and to answer any questions you may have.



The Patient Accounts Representative can help obtain approval or pre-certification for your procedure, if necessary.




If you do not have insurance or are paying cash for your surgery, you will be asked to submit payment on or before the date of your surgery, unless other arrangements have been made. You may also be asked to sign a financial agreement. Please remember that these arrangements are your responsibility and must be made prior to your surgery.



If you have verified insurance, you will be asked to pay only your portion (your co-payment and/or deductible) on or before the day of surgery.

We accept all major credit cards.



We will bill your insurance provider for you. Any balance that your insurance provider does not cover is your responsibility.


Hours 8 a.m. — 4:30 p.m., Monday — Friday.


If you need to discuss special financial arrangements, please call (219) 983-1401.



If you have any other questions about your surgery, please call Lakeshore Surgicare at (219) 983-1401.
