You will receive three different bills following your procedure at Elliot 1-Day Surgery:

  • A facility fee from Elliot 1-Day Surgery
  • An anesthesia fee from Amoskeag Anesthesia
  • A professional fee from Dartmouth-Hitchcock for your surgeon’s care

If you are having any pathology or biopsies/labs conducted (breast, gynecology, orthopaedic, general surgery), you will also receive a separate pathology bill from Elliot.

For pediatric patients: If you have a child who has a Dartmouth-Hitchcock Provider, pediatric pathology/labs will be billed by Dartmouth-Hitchcock/Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital.

In New Hampshire, you have the right to let others know your wishes in advance regarding medical care through a Living Will and a Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare. You have the right to indicate what medical care you would want to accept or refuse should you become incapacitated.

A federal law known as the Patient Self-Determination Act requires that, upon admission to the hospital, you be asked if you have a Living Will and/or Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare. If you have one or both documents, please provide them to your provider to keep them on file.
