Information For Patients
Our services connect you or your insurer and a healthcare provider from our network to create a smooth pathway for you to access surgery treatment at transparent, bundled prices in the USA.
If you need help with paying for your procedure, we can also help you locate no-interest financing from specialized medical lenders.
Call us and speak with one of our concierge team members. There’s no cost to chat and ask questions. Once we have your information, we can help you arrange everything including consults with the surgeon, testing, travel, accommodation, and follow up care.
If you need financial assistance or you have insurance from your employer, we will help you work through all the steps to limit your out-of-pocket impact. Our lenders will also help with travel and accommodation for you and a companion traveler and other related expenses if you are a U.S. or Canadian resident.
We’ve helped thousands receive the surgery they need, when they need it. We work with a vast network of pre-qualified, inspected and accredited healthcare providers. We constantly update prices in the database so you can rely on the prices you see on our website. Unlike many other websites that offer access to these low prices only to insurance networks who pay monthly network access fees, we welcome individual consumers as well as insurers, TPAs, and other purchasing groups and we don’t charge any monthly network access fees.
While you may have a commercial health insurance policy through your employer or elsewhere, it may not meet your needs for the surgery you would like to arrange. The procedure may not be covered under your benefit program.
Many health insurance plans have high deductibles, co-pays or large out of pockets costs that may present a financial hardship for you. The providers in your network may charge as much as $20,000 to $30,000 more than you can find here, which means your deductible and copay amount will be much higher for an in-network provider. If that’s the case, you’ll save on out-of- pocket expenses if you arrange surgery through SurgeryShopper.com
You may also want to protect your privacy or arrange a procedure that is not available in your hometown.
SurgeryShopper concierge team members will sort out all the details with you to help you get the care you need when you need it. And if we can get your insurance plan administrator to agree to cover your procedure out-of-network at a significant savings, they are duty-bound to consider authorizing your surgery through us.

We plan your flights, driving routes, hotel stays, ground transfers, coordinate airport arrival and departure with drivers, arrange for grocery or meals and prescription delivery, coordinate transfers to and from the health facility where you’ll have surgery, and coordinate all your consultations with surgeons, anesthesiologists, admissions nurses and even coordinate your rehab and aftercare.

Your surgeon will specify when they would like you to arrive for your pre-operative consultation. Generally, you should arrive 2-3 business days in advance, and you will usually stay 3-5 nights after your procedure before you are discharged and determined “fit to travel” by car or by air to your hometown.
Your concierge will go over these options with you. We have only two concerns: Your safety and your comfort.
We are only concerned that the accommodation meets your medical needs and preferences. For air travel, we want to be sure that the aircraft and seating arrangements are medically – appropriate for your needs and comfort. We don’t make any money on airfare or hotel arrangements, so we have no concern if you pay in mileage and loyalty rewards. If you got ’em, and the hotel you need or flights you need will accept them, by all means! Feel free to use them!
If an attorney is involved, please notify them you’d like to use our services and we’ll work with them to help you get the surgery you need even if you don’t have insurance or are awaiting a settlement.
Of course! Your concierge will advise you about what to arrange and the recommended selection criteria for hotel rooms, AirBnB or similar homestay, staying with friends and relatives, and choosing flights and aircraft and seat selections. Just let us know you want to do this on your own, but keep in mind, we can usually offer hotel and flight prices unavailable to the general public. Feel free to compare ALL your options.
