All patients should familiarize themselves with the terms of their insurance coverage. This will help you understand the hospital's billing procedures and charges. If there is a question about your insurance coverage, a member of the Patient Financial Services department will contact you or a member of your family while you are here.
We will need a copy of your insurance identification card. We also may need the insurance forms that are supplied by your employer or your insurance company. You will be asked to assign benefits from the insurance company directly to the hospital.
All commercial insurance benefits not contracted with the hospital will be accepted and billed to the insurance company as a courtesy to our patients. Any amounts not paid by the commercial insurance company will be billed to the patient.
If you are unable to make payment in full, please call to make acceptable payment arrangements. Payment may be remitted by check, money order, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express.
Your plan may have special requirements, such as a second surgical opinion or precertification for certain tests or procedures. It is your responsibility to make sure the requirements of your plan have been met. If your plan's requirements are not followed, you may be financially responsible for all or part of the services rendered at the hospital. Some physician specialists may not participate in your health plan, and their services may not be covered.
