Third Party Payors

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) staff are available to answer questions and assist members who are experiencing issues with third party payors (private insurance companies). These issues could include lack of coverage, prior authorization, surprise billing, network adequacy, narrow networks, tiering, or others.
