Less Out of Pocket

Surgery Center Cedar Rapids in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Surgery Center Cedar Rapids offers an affordable alternative for outpatient procedures.  We are the only stand-alone ambulatory surgery center in Linn County, so our costs are much lower than at a hospital or hospital-based facility. Our patient co-pays and out-of-pocket costs are often 30-40% less. A big reason for these lower costs is that surgery centers like ours are much more economical for Medicare and nearly every other insurance plan.
