Frequently Asked Questions

Our office is located in the heart of Newaygo, Michigan at 53 West Wood St.

Some of West Michigan’s best surgeons perform procedures at CHS. They also operate out of area hospitals and surgery centers. Every surgeon is aligned with the CHS mission and values, and has experience providing quality patient outcomes.

Yes.

You can be scheduled for a consultation when referred to CHS by your primary care physician. For patients who do not have a primary care physician, you can schedule a consultation by calling CHS directly.

Pricing

Prices include the facility fee, surgeon’s fee, anesthesiology, pathology (as applicable), implants if needed, and routine follow-up care. See pricing details for more information.

CHS cuts out bureaucracy, added hospital network cost, cost-shifting, and other expenses that have made specialty care so expensive. Furthermore, CHS is a nonprofit medical ministry whose focus is on patients, not payments.

The price quoted is applicable for 60 days.

Payments for consultations and procedures/surgeries are made to Christian Healthcare Specialists.

Payments can be made using cashier’s check, money order, debit or credit card, and HSA/FSA cards. Human resource departments or TPAs from self-funded employers can make arrangements for payment.

CHS does accept the following insurance plans:

  • Priority Health
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • Aetna
  • United Health
  • Cofinity

*Check with CHS Patient Services to see if your specific plan can be accepted.

It will only count toward your yearly deductible if CHS accepts your insurance plan. In addition, patients in a self-funded employer plan may have programs that incentivize arranging for surgical care at CHS. Patient services representatives will be happy to discuss your specific situation.

Yes. Many insured patients who have not met their insurance deductible find our self-pay fees to be less expensive than if they use their insurance. Consult one of our patient representatives to explain your options.

To keep prices affordable, CHS needs prompt payment for services rendered. However, CHS will make every effort to find a payment option that is compatible with your budget. Speak with a patient services representative about your situation to make payment arrangements.

You will be responsible for the consultation fee.
