All Self-Pay patients, excluding elective cosmetic procedures and facility-designated self-pay flat rate procedures, will receive a discount similar to managed care, referred to as an "uninsured discount." The Uninsured Discount is limited to patients who have no third-party payer source of payment or do not qualify for Medicaid, Charity, or any other discount program the facility offers. The discount amount may vary by location based on state requirements, patient income levels, and local rates.

What to Expect Before Anesthesia
The day before surgery
The day before your surgery, a nurse may call you to obtain a medical history, confirm your arrival time and location and answer any questions. Read through the following for helpful pre-surgery tips:
- Eating, drinking, and smoking: Each surgical procedure may require different preparation. Please follow your physician's instructions about diet and preparation.
- Anesthesia: The attending anesthesiologist during surgery may call you the night before. This will allow you to ask questions about your care.
- Medications: If you usually take medications in the morning, ask your doctor if you should take them before surgery. If you are advised to do so, take them with as little water as possible
The day of surgery
Please follow your doctor's instructions about when to arrive. If you are unsure when your doctor wants you to arrive, please call the hospital for clarification.
You should bring the following items:
- Insurance card
- Photo ID or driver's license
