Surgery cost - Canton differences being charged

For Basic insurance, we have the coverage for all of Switzerland. I had thought that would mean that we would be covered for medical costs no matter what canton. With a very specialized back surgery, we have chosen to go to the Schweizer Paraplegiker Zentrum in Kanton Luzern and have just received the estimated costs and they have included the difference in costs from the Zurich canton (where we reside) to the Kt. Luzern costs as something we should be paying.

Is this normal? Or should we be calling and questioning this? They are covering the vast majority of it but the amount indicated is still a bigger hit to the account than we expected especially when we first contacted the insurance company and they said it would be covered...
