A Surgical Assistant should not be confused with a “Surgical Technician.” A surgical tech is a member of the OR team that typically hands out instruments to the surgeon and his/her assistant during surgery.
Certified Surgical Assistants are just as capable as Licensed Surgical Assistants. We hire and train only qualified candidates.
We usually receive insurance information from the Hospital where you had your surgery directly from your provider. If the information is complete, we will use that information to send a claim to your insurance carrier. If you wish to verify that the information we have is accurate & complete, please fill out the back of the stub that came with your bill giving us full insurance information, including your identification number, your group number, and the name of the insured person and his or her date of birth. It is very helpful to send us a photocopy of the front and back of your insurance card. This way, if we do not have complete and accurate information, we can promptly correct our files, submit a claim to your insurance carrier in a timely manner, and avoid any delays in the payment of your bill.
