A health record is created any time you see a health professional such as a doctor, nurse, dentist, chiropractor, or psychiatrist. You could find the following in your health record:
- Your medical history and your family’s medical history
- Labs and x-rays
- Medications prescribed
- Alcohol use
- Details about your lifestyle (smoking, exercise, recreational drug use, high-risk sports, stress levels)
- Doctor/nurse notes
- Operations and procedures
- Driver’s License
- Social Security Number
- Financial information such as credit cards and payment info
Please bring the following documentation to your appointment:
Identification (Driver’s License, AARP card, legal photo ID’s)
Records of any surgeries or procedures you have undergone (MRI, CAT scan, X-Ray)
A list of all medications you are currently taking.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please notify our office at least 24 hours in advance. If you cannot make it to your appointment due to an emergency, please notify our office before your scheduled appointment to avoid having a No Show added to your customer profile.
Missing appointments without notifying our office prior to your scheduled time will result in a No Show being added to your profile. After two (2) No Shows our schedulers will be notified and you will be unable to schedule further appointments with Milwaukee Surgery Center.
Milwaukee Surgery Center accepts most forms of insurance, either private or employer provided. It is your responsibility to read and understand your policy’s coverage and payment details such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance. These are the patient’s responsibility to pay. We ask that you please bring proof of insurance, photo identification, and a current list of medications to every appointment to avoid delays.
All payments for services rendered are due within 30 days of date of service unless alternate payment schedules have been arranged with Milwaukee Surgery Center’s Business Center. Please contact us at 414-434-2424 to make arrangements for alternate payment schedules.
Payments for services may be paid via cash, credit cards, or check. If you cannot make your arranged payments within 30 days, you may make alternate payment arrangements with our Business Office. Alternate payment plans MUST be approved by our Business Office and noted in our payment records. Partial payments cannot be made without prior arrangements with our Business Centers.
In the event three (3) missed payments with no payments recorded on your account, and no alternate payment arrangements have been made with our Business Office, your account may be referred to an outside collection agency.
In the event of a divorce or separation the parent authorizing treatment for the child will be responsible for payment of the account.
