Billing

St. Louis Surgical Consultants, while affiliated with St. Luke’s Hospital, is a privately owned practice and may not accept the same insurance plans as the hospital. Billing is also separate. Your St. Luke’s statement covers hospital charges, while your St. Louis Surgical statement covers the fee for your surgeon. St. Luke’s financial aid does NOT apply to St. Louis Surgical charges, anesthesia charges, or pathology charges.

For questions or concerns about your St. Louis Surgical Consultants billing statement please contact our billing company (RCM360) at 1-855-245-8035. Payment plans are available to fit EVERY budget.

For questions or concerns about your St. Luke’s Hospital statement or bill please contact St. Luke’s Patient Financial Services at 314-576-8100.

 

Insurance

Our physicians are considered “Specialists.” Because of this, HMO insurance plans require an insurance referral from your primary care provider before they will allow you to see a Specialist. It is your responsibility to obtain this referral from your primary care provider before you can be seen in our office.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of insurance plans that our patients could potentially belong to. While we are in-network with the vast majority of these it is always a good idea to check your individual plan, so that there are no surprises. To do this, call the number on the back of your insurance card (“Member Services”). Give them the name of the provider you are planning to see. They will be able to check your specific plan to verify that you have in-network benefits. “Out of network” benefits means that you will likely have to pay more out of pocket and/or have a higher deductible.

Always check with your insurance company about your benefits.
