Insurance

Although the hospital provides all possible billing assistance to you, payment is not guaranteed from insurance. Please call your insurance company regarding the services you are to receive, and verify their coverage and any possible pre-certification required.

You are responsible for any deductibles and co-insurance.

After your insurance pays its portion of the bill, you will receive a statement the following month for any remaining balance your insurance indicates is your responsibility.

For any questions you may have relating to the billing of your insurance (including Medicare and Medicaid), contact a billing specialist in Patient Financial Services. Note the type of insurance you have and give your last name so that your call may be directed to the specialist handling your account.

Self-Pay

Statements are generated when your remaining balance is determined to be self-pay. You will be mailed a statement on the fifth business day of the month following your treatment.

Itemized Bill

You may request an itemized bill for services you received by calling a billing specialist at the number noted on this brochure or mailing your request to the hospital at the address noted on this brochure.
