PBOSC - Palm Beach Outpatient Surgical Center
To help cover the cost of cataract surgery, Palm Beach Outpatient Surgical Center is pleased to accept Medicare and most insurance plans. Medicare typically covers the cost of a traditional cataract procedure and a standard intraocular lens (IOL). Your options, costs, and insurance coverage will be discussed with you in detail at the time of your cataract consultation.
If the cost of cataract surgery or a premium lens is a barrier to getting clear vision then we want to help by offering a financing option. Our patients are referred to Care Credit to meet their financial assistance needs.
The surgery center is also affiliated with two non-profit agencies that provide medical services to their recipients at no charge. Payment is due at the time of service and payment plans are not offered. Please call us at 561-469-6208 to schedule an appointment or to speak with one of our caring and knowledgeable cataract counselors.

Patients and prospective patients should contact each healthcare practitioner who will provide services in Palm Beach Outpatient Surgical Center to determine the health insurers and health maintenance organizations with which the healthcare practitioner participates as a network provider or preferred provider.

If Palm Beach Outpatient Surgery Center believes that you have health insurance and/or HMO coverage(s) that may cover some or all of the Services, we may initiate contact with them to determine your cost-sharing responsibilities for services provided. You may contact them directly as well for additional information concerning your cost-sharing responsibilities. If it is determined that you have cost-sharing responsibilities, in accordance with PBOSC’s financial assistance policies, you will be required to pay your cost-sharing responsibilities in full on or before the date that Services are provided. Our financial assistance policies are that if you are unable to pay your cost-sharing responsibilities in full on or before the date that Services are provided, because you believe you are medically indigent or you are not covered by any health insurance or HMO, then upon request PBOSC, in its sole discretion, may offer you a discount on the amount due and/or offer a payment plan. Any such discount is considered to be “charity care.” There is no formal application process for obtaining “charity care” at PBOSC Our standard collection policy is to produce and send one or more bills to patients for their cost sharing amount.
Any deductible or co-pay as calculated by your insurance company, will be collected no later than the date of service. After surgery the facility will submit your bill to your insurance company. Upon receipt of payment from the insurance company, if any portion of the cost is deemed the patient’s responsibility, a bill will be sent to the patient. Payment not received by its due date will be referred to our in-house collections.
