More convenient and comfortable for your patients
For example, a Medicare beneficiary could pay as much as $496 in coinsurance for a cataract extraction procedure performed in a hospital outpatient department, whereas that same beneficiary's co-payment in the ASC would be only $195.
While in today's healthcare environment cost savings are very high on on a priority list, there are many more reasons why as physician you should consider performing your cases at the free-standing outpatient facility.
WHY A SURGERY CENTER?
Recent advancements in medical technology, combined with refinements in the delivery of health care services, have made outpatient surgery centers a safe, convenient, and cost-effective alternative for many surgical patients. Magna Surgical Center is a fully licensed, Joint Commission accredited free-standing surgical facility offering the security and quality of a hospital, but with greater comfort and convenience. In addition, as reported by the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association, patients typically pay less coinsurance for procedures performed in the ASC than for comparable procedures in the hospital setting.
