Billing/Insurance

The Women's Cancer Center of Nevada is contracted with many insurance companies and HMOs/PPOs. If we are not listed as a provider on your plan, we will make every effort to work out something with your insurer. Still, it is in your best interest to familiarize yourself with the requirements of your medical insurance plan and to make sure they are complied with appropriately.

If you are an HMO/PPO member, please tell us at the time you make your first appointment. Frequently, HMO/PPO authorization for your referral must be arranged through a primary care physician.

Although our charges are competitive with other specialists in the area, due to the nature of our practice, they may exceed what some insurance carriers describe as "usual or customary." Our office requires payment at the time of office visits, consultations and office procedures. If you have insurance, we will give you the forms you need to complete your office visit claim.

For both outpatient and inpatient surgery, we will submit your insurance claims and will respond promptly to any requests for information from you or your carrier. Insurance plans vary and may not pay 100% of your surgical costs. You are responsible for any amount not covered by your plan. Unless you are a member of a contracted HMO/PPO, 20% of your estimated surgical fee will be due prior to your scheduled surgery.

We will do everything we can to follow up on your insurance claim for two months (60 days). After this time, you will be responsible for further follow-up, as well as any unpaid balance. You should note that two months after your claim has been submitted, the balance will accrue interest of one percent per month.

Please contact our billing staff at (702) 588-7440 if you have any questions, or would like to arrange a payment plan.
