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.
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.
