Lake Regional invites the public to Understanding Health Care Billing, a free one-hour health talk scheduled 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 16, at the hospital.
“We understand that health care bills can be confusing, and we want to help people by providing some basic information about the billing process,” said Lorrie Haden, CRCS, manager of Lake Regional Revenue Cycle.
Topics at this health talk include understanding the difference between a deductible, co-insurance and co-pay; how to avoid an unexpected bill; choosing the right payment option for you; and applying for financial assistance.
The health talk is free but registration is required. Register at lakeregional.com/billingtalk.
