Billing Questions

Billing Questions

As an independent medical provider, Dr. Lutz’s professional fee is billed separately from High Pointe Surgery Center and Minnesota Valley Surgery Center.

Billing services for Lon Lutz, MD are administered by Surgical Management Professionals (SMP), a billing company based out of Sioux Falls, SD. If you have questions about Dr. Lutz’s portion of the bill or you wish to set up a payment plan, please call 1-888-258-0894 or email lutzbilling@smpsd.com.

Co-Pays and Payments

CO-PAYS

All co-pays are due at the time of your visit, and will be collected prior to your procedure. We accept checks, cash and credit cards. Dr. Lutz is not able to discount or eliminate your co-pays.
If you would like to pay your Co-Pay in advance or make a payment on your bill with a credit card, you may contact Dr. Lutz’s office at 651-313-8250 and such payments can be made over the phone.

COINSURANCE

It is the patient’s responsibility to understand what their obligations are under their individual policy. Our office or the SMP Billing office will be happy to help you understand those obligations once your insurance carrier has provided an Explanation of Benefits. However, it is the expectation of Dr. Lutz that all outstanding patient responsibility balances be paid promptly.

SELF-PAY

If you wish to inquire about options for SELF-PAY options for your procedures, please contact Dr. Lutz’s office at 651-313-8250.
