The self pay bundled fees on our website are all-inclusive of the FACILITY, SURGEON and ANESTHESIA FEES and routine, uncomplicated follow-up care associated with the procedure. The initial consultation fee with the surgeon is also included.
The duration of postoperative care is different for each surgical procedure, therefore your surgeon will inform you about the amount of postoperative care included in the price. The $200 initial consultation fee is applied to the total cost of the procedure should surgery be indicated. If surgery is not indicated the $200 will be retained by Minimus Institute and paid to the surgeon.
Fees published on our website do not include any diagnostic studies related to the surgery such as laboratory work, MRI exams, X-ray imaging, or consultations with specialists to determine medical risk/management, physical therapy and rehabilitation. These fees do not include hardware or implants required for the procedure (grafts, plates, screws, etc. for orthopedic procedures).
Following your surgical consultation and determination of the type of implant (if necessary) you and your surgeon select, our billing department will provide you with a comprehensive total cost. Actual implant invoices will be provided to you.
Lodging and/or travel expenses are not included. An overnight stay at our facility can be arranged on a case-by-case basis.
Expenses or fees resulting from complications subsequent to the completion of surgery and discharge from the facility are not included. Insurance covering this possibility can be purchased separately from Minimus Institute.
The list of procedures on our website is a partial list of those available. Please call us to inquire about other surgery options and pricing. The prices listed are non-negotiable and are available only to those who pay the entire amount in advance. These self pay prices are possible due to advance payment and elimination of claims processing.
Minimus Institute (operated by Monterey Peninsula Surgery Centers, LLC) is contracted with most health insurance companies and will process the claim with your insurer. Please call us for pricing and out of pocket expense as it will vary based on your carrier. Procedure pricing is for the calendar year of 2016.
