Since any out-of-pocket costs are determined by the details outlined by your insurance plan product, it’s important to understand the specifics – including what’s in-network and what you may be financially responsible for.

Surgical Specialty Center of Westchester is a participating provider in many health plan networks. Some plans use smaller networks for certain products they offer, so it’s important to check whether or not we participate in the specific plan you are covered by. See if your insurance is accepted.
