You will receive a separate bill from the surgical assistant. Most insurance companies do not have contracts with surgical assistants, therefore your assistant may be out of network. The surgical assistant may or may not be covered by your health insurance plan. If you have specific questions regarding surgical assistant services or whether an assistant will be required for a specific surgical procedure, please let your provider or the staff know.
