Accepted Insurance Plans
In most cases, the hospital will accept your assignment of insurance benefits and will forward your hospital bill directly to the insurance company. The hospital will allow 90 days from the date that the insurance company is billed for payment. If you have not received a notice of payment from your insurer within 60 days of receiving a copy of your hospital bill, the hospital recommends that you contact the insurer directly and encourage speedy payment. If the insurance company has not sent payment to the hospital within 90 days, the status of your account will change from "insurance pay" to "patient pay." At that time, you will be expected to make prompt payment. You are responsible for the total charges for the care and treatment you received at the hospital.
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 Admitting Department will contact you or a member of your family while you are here.
