What Experts Are Saying About Knee Pain

Are you suffering from knee pain when you sit, walk or climb stairs? Do you notice a feeling of something loose in your knee, a sharp pain when you bend, or a knee joint that just doesn’t move like it’s supposed to? NTTC Surgery Center is one of the best resources for people experiencing knee pain.

To get a proper diagnosis, your physician may need to do a procedure called “Knee Arthroscopy.” During a knee arthroscopy your physician can diagnose and often repair injuries like torn ligaments, torn cartilage, fractured bone and bothersome cysts that may be the source of your discomfort and pain.

In this minimally-invasive surgery, your board-certified surgeon will make a very small incision, insert a tiny camera (arthroscope) and identify the problem. Tools attached to the arthroscope can then make surgical corrections, if needed. Recovery time is short for this procedure and can result in a better-functioning knee joint with less pain.  Want to know more about this procedure, link to our education video here.

Need a knee arthroscopy but not sure how to pay for it? NTTC can help. We accept Medicare and most commercial insurance plans. No insurance? No problem! NTTC offers affordable cash prices and financing options. Need help finding a physician, NTTC can help with that too.

How Much Can You Save

Top Tip for Controlling Healthcare Costs

One of the best tips for controlling healthcare costs is to utilize your deductible wisely.  Most plans require that you pay out of pocket until you meet your annual deductible before the plan will pay for any covered costs and most plans reset the deductible to zero on January 1 of each year.

If this describes your plan, be sure to check how much you have met of your deductible year to date.  If you have met your deductible or are close, consider planning needed tests or procedures before the end of the year to maximize your coverage for these services.

Controlling Surgery Out of Pocket Costs

Controlling Surgery Out of Pocket Costs

A quick review of daily headlines confirms what most Texans already know. Healthcare premiums have risen and individual and family deductibles have skyrocketed. Despite the daunting trends, there are tips that can help the average Texan reduce his or her costs.

First, be familiar with the terms of your health insurance coverage. No one looks forward to an evening of reading their health insurance plan, but if you are considering having surgery, it will pay big rewards to make sure you understand the type of coverage you have.

A second way for Texans to control out of pocket costs is to seek services from an ambulatory surgery facility where costs can often be half that of hospitals or hospital based facilities. Many plans calculate the out of pocket cost due from you as a percentage of the overall surgery charges. Therefore, it pays to find a facility that will help you by providing an estimate of your cost.

Lastly, if your plan has a high deductible ($4,000 or more), it may pay for you to research facilities that provide cash pay options. In fact, paying cash instead of filing with your insurance coverage could save you hundreds of dollars.
