The staff here at the Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence understands that many patients preparing for surgery may have questions about insurance billing and cost of our services. With so many providers and plans out there, determining your own personal benefits can be overwhelming. The Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence accepts Aetna, Cigna, Health Net, and United, but are more than willing to consider outside plans and offer you competitive pricing.
Here at the Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence, we can sympathize that healthcare billing can be confusing and frustrating, so we make ourselves available to every patient and strive to simplify the process. Don’t hesitate to contact us at (888) 349-1398 for any questions regarding your upcoming procedure and payment. You may also call us for personal coverage assessment prior to visiting one of our expert physicians.
Insurance Plans Accepted at the Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence
Here at the Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence, we gladly accept all PPO plans (Preferred Provider Organizations) and will work closely with your healthcare provider to decipher your benefits and coverage. PPO plans allow flexibility in selecting a healthcare provider and facility, and are therefore preferred by most of our patients. We accept the following PPOs:

For those patients who have a plan not previously listed or who do not have a current healthcare provider, we offer competitive cash discounts. Our billing department can also help determine individualized payment arrangements for patients without insurance.
Fees and Payment Arrangements
For each procedure performed at the Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence, multiple services may be necessary to achieve the highest quality patient care. These additional services are then factored into the total cost of care. The Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence charges an initial facility fee, then adds any applicable surgeon, anesthesiologist, consulting physician, and laboratory fees into the overall procedure cost. These additional fees may vary based on procedure.
Patients receiving treatment at our advanced outpatient center are responsible for all payments regarding their procedure. For individuals with health insurance, we ask that you pay your expected deductible and any co-pays prior to your operation. We accept cash, personal checks, (co-pay ONLY), VISA, MasterCard, Discover Card, and American Express. We then bill your insurance company for the remaining balance.
Advantages of Outpatient Surgery
Over all cost and quality of care are important considerations for anyone considering an elective surgical procedure. The Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence offers high-quality, individualized care in a safe and luxurious outpatient setting.
Our advanced facilities, state-of-the-art technology, and expertly trained staff all allow us to perform a plethora of procedures in an outpatient setting that would otherwise require inpatient treatment. Inpatient hospital stays can be so incredibly expensive and disruptive of daily functioning that many of out patients prefer our comparable or even discounted procedures.
The Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence offers a number of elective, non-emergency procedures. Due to this, our patients generally experience a quick recovery and are far less likely to contract an infection. Additionally, our staff of physicians and medical assistants works closely together each day, facilitating speedy communication, shortening time spent under anesthesia, and increasing surgical efficiency. In fact, the Hyperhidrosis Center of Excellence is quickly developing a reputation as the “go-to” outpatient surgical facility in southern California.
