Patients have the option of choosing to pay for their health care themselves, rather than utilizing health insurance. Patients who choose to privately pay for their procedure/service or who may not have insurance, will need to obtain a self-pay quote for the facility costs at Kaleida Health. The following information will make the self-pay process a simple one:
Call (716) 859-8900 or email SelfPayQuoteTeam@KaleidaHealth.org . One of our team members will gladly assist you. Please have the CPT codes (billing codes) for the services you are inquiring about when calling. Ask your referring physician for the appropriate CPT codes.
