If you’ve thought about scheduling surgery before the end of the year or during the winter holidays, it’s best to schedule it now by setting up an appointment with one of our surgeons.
Our doctors who book non-emergency surgeries are usually busier during the months of November and December as more and more people try to get the most out of their high-deductible insurance plans.
Why does the end of the year matter?
End of the year surgery is important from an insurance perspective because insurance policy limits are based on a calendar year and they roll over January 1. For example, if you’ve already used most of your insurance policy, you may only have a small out-of-pocket expense left. And if that’s the case, scheduling a surgery before the end of the year could be more beneficial from a financial standpoint, then waiting until next year.
Many common surgeries patients will consider booking before the end of the year include:
- Hernia repairs
- Anti-reflux surgery
- Gallbladder removal
- Varicose vein ablation and/or treatments
How much will you pay?
First of all, it’s important to check with your insurance company and discuss the specifics of your policy. Let them know what procedure you’re looking at having and they can give you an idea of your out-of-pocket expenses. Our insurance and financial staff also work with our patients and insurance companies and can help you find this information out!
