Your Health Can’t Wait… Scheduling Your Procedure NOW Could Save You Money

Nov 15, 2023

Patients who have already met their health insurance deductible for 2023 can benefit from scheduling elective procedures this calendar year

Patients' insurance deductibles may be approaching or have already been met, and scheduling surgery before December 31 might save them thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses. We recognize that life is better without pain and at West Boca Medical Center we can provide care allowing you to live in comfort.

“By choosing to schedule your surgery before the end of the year, if you have already satisfied your deductible, isn’t just about managing costs, it’s an investment in your future well-being,” said West Boca Medical Center CEO Jerad Hanlon. “By taking this proactive step, you are securing financial benefits and more importantly, ensuring a healthier, more fulfilling life for the years to come."

As we enter ‘The Season’ in South Florida, when snowbirds flock here to enjoy an active life style in favorable weather, one of the more common areas of injury is the shoulder. Whether it was injured playing golf, tennis, pickleball or just wear and tear over the years, a nagging shoulder problem can put all of that on hold. If your deductible has already been met, you can get back to doing what you love at a much lower cost, while receiving quality care.

“Your shoulder is critical not just for activities of daily living and everyday comfort, it’s the gateway to activities like golf, swimming and pickleball,” said Dr. Jonathan Levy, shoulder and elbow surgeon on staff here at West Boca Medical Center, as well as the director of the Levy Shoulder to Hand Center at the Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute. “Don't let an annoyance turn into a burden and get your procedure done before the year's end.”
