FRISCO, Texas, Jan. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Preston Surgery Center is a privately owned outpatient surgical center in Frisco, Texas who now offers transparent cash pricing for self-pay patients and employers with self funded medical plans. Do you or your employee need to have a surgical procedure? How much is it going to cost at a hospital or another surgery center? The answer most likely will be vague; it depends on your insurance benefits, we are unsure on the cost of anesthesia, your surgeon bills separately from the facility. If you need a carpal tunnel release at Preston Surgery Center it will cost $3,000. If an arthroscopic procedure of the knee is needed it will cost $4,760. These prices include the anesthesia, surgeon, and surgery center fees.
According to the 2017 Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation Survey, between 2005 and 2015 covered workers’ average out-of-pocket costs grew 66 percent while they spent 229% more toward their deductibles. From 2013 to the first quarter of 2017, health insurance premiums also increased 99% for individuals and over 140% for family coverage according to eHealth, Inc. Preston Surgery Center realized these types of increases are not sustainable for workers, individuals, families, or employers and decided to provide an alternative model in Frisco, Texas.
Preston Surgery Center has posted their prices on PrestonSurgeryCenter.com to allow self-pay patients and self funded employers to gain transparency in surgical care creating the ability to predict surgical costs prior to a procedure. Their decision to work directly with patients and employers has eliminated the middle man allowing them to charge fees at a fraction of the cost most local hospitals charge for the same procedure.
