Billing

Insurance Information

Southwoods accepts most major insurance carriers and encourages you to contact your carrier directly, prior to receiving services, for the most accurate estimate of out-of-pocket costs.

You are expected to pay co-payments required by your health insurance plan at the time of services. Southwoods will bill your primary insurance for you. If you have secondary insurance coverage, we will bill that carrier after your primary insurance benefits are processed. As a patient, you assume responsibility for paying any charges that your insurance carrier denies or does not pay.

For a list of accepted insurances or to speak with one of our customer service representatives, please call 330-729-8086.

Our Commitment to Price Transparency

The Surgical Hospital at Southwoods is committed to working with consumers, insurance companies and policymakers to promote price transparency in support of better health, more cost effective services and patient-centered care. The hospital’s charges are compiled in the same manner for all patients, but please be aware that charge information by itself is not a good indicator in determining how much you may ultimately pay for a given service. A patient’s individual financial responsibility may vary depending on the agreements that are negotiated between the hospital and a particular insurance company as well as the out-of-pocket responsibilities that are associated with each health insurance plan. Similarly, charges can differ from patient to patient for similar services, depending on the time and intensity of services, treatments performed and/or supplies used during the procedure.
