Your Bill

We know that medical bills can be confusing. In an effort to simplify matters, we will assist you in verifying your insurance and identifying prior authorization requirements, deductibles and copayments. Please be prepared to pay all applicable insurance deductibles, and copayments before you enter the hospital or at the time you are admitted.

After you leave the hospital, we will bill your insurance company directly. Once we have reconciled your account with your insurance company, you will receive a bill for any remaining copayments or deductions, as well as for any non-covered items and services. For your convenience, you may pay by cash, check, Discover, American Express, Visa, or MasterCard. If you have questions about our billing procedures — or inquiries about your hospital bill—we will be happy to answer them. Please call our business office on Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Check your hospital for specific hours.

In addition to your hospital bill, you may also receive separate bills from your doctor, anesthesiologist, radiologist, pathologist, and other specialists who cared for you.

Medicare

If you are enrolled in Medicare, we will send you a bill only if you have an outstanding deductible amount or have incurred charges for non-covered items or services. This also applies to patients enrolled in supplemental policies. If there are no uninsured items, we will bill Medicare directly and you will not receive a bill from us.

Billing for the Uninsured

You may be eligible for the Charity Care and Discounted Payment Program. Please contact the business office at (619) 470-4150.
