OCFA WAS THE FIRST FOOT & ANKLE SPECIALTY OFFICE IN KENTUCKY TO OFFER A TRANSPARENT FEE LIST FOR CASH PATIENTS
Cash discounts require payment at time of service. Cash discounts will not be billed to any insurance. Patients with government health insurance plans that OCFA has a contract with will be unable to receive cash discounts for covered services. Dr. Pedersen has obtain special cash discounts for surgical patients at the SURGECENTER OF LOUISVILLE, for Facility fees and Anesthesia fees, however we can only give you an estimate on fees as the SURGECENTER OF LOUISVILLE alone determines the final cost of services at their facility.
CASH FEE LIST
Oldham County Foot & Ankle was the first podiatry office in the Louisville metro area to post discounted same day cash prices for our most common procedures and treatments. We understand that healthcare can be very expensive and confusing to understand exactly how much treatments will cost. Did you know that Medicare posts a fee schedule every year with what they will pay, for procedures and office visits? Many doctors offices will use this fee schedule and set their prices 3 to 4 times higher than what Medicare will pay. So if you are paying cash you are often paying 3 to 4 times more than those with insurance for the same treatment from a doctor without transparent pricing. We offer very reasonable rates at deep discounts for same day cash patients. Did you also know that many hospitals are rapidly buying up doctors? Why? Because the hospital employed doctors, whether they are based out of a large hospital or a small local clinic can bill your insurance much more and get paid by your insurance much more than an independent doctor. If you have a high deductible insurance plan, then that big bill from the hospital is going to be passed on to you. Many surgeons will schedule your surgery at whatever hospital is convenient for them and will not even consider the financial impact surgery at that particular facility might have on the patient. Dr. Pedersen and his surgical scheduling staff will always look for the least expensive option for our surgical patients. We can possibly save you thousands of dollars.
We look forward to meeting you soon!

P.S. Foot and ankle pain is not normal and if left untreated could lead to more serious conditions. To parents, if you have noticed an abnormality in your child's feet or in the way they walk and were told by the pediatrician not to worry "they will grow out of it", you should consider getting a second opinion from a specialist. While it is true that many children will grow out of their foot and gait conditions, some will not. Many pediatric conditions can be treated conservatively while the feet and lower extremities are still growing, however if left untreated may require surgery, later in life.
