These prices are listed for Medicare patients (beginning October 1, 2013), patients who do not have insurance coverage, patients who have enrolled in Obamacare, or have private insurance that is "out-of-network. For most private insurances that are "in-network", I am required to charge "allowable prices" set by the insurance company, since I am under contract with those plans. If you have BlueCross "TrueBlue PPO" or Federal Blue Cross, I am out of network, and can therefore charge you my cash prices. Here in Arkansas, BCBS made the decision to put all Obamacare and whatever Medicaid that they can scoop up ("Private Option" in Arkansas political speech) into the TrueBlue PPO and Federal BCBS. They did this to force Arkansas physicians to see Obamacare patients, or resign from those networks. I chose to resign from the networks (therefore becoming an "out-of-network" physician), because of my stand against Obamacare and further government/private insurance interference into the individual relationship that I have with my patients.

You can contact my staff if you have questions.

CASH PRICES FOR SURGiCAL PROCEDUES  PERFORMED IN AN OPERATING ROOM

These are my charges, only. This does not include any applicable anesthesia charges, pathology, laboratory , radiology, or operating room charges. If I am out of network with your insurance company, the hospital, anesthesiologist, radiologist, etc., are almost always in network, so your insurance coverage is unchanged with all of those charges. If you are uninsured, or if the hospital happens to be out of network on your insurance, I can negotiate a much lower cash/credit card price for you, in almost every case.
