Insurance Billing

As a courtesy to our patients, the hospital will submit bills to your insurance company and will follow the processing of your claim. However, it may be necessary for you to contact the insurance company to expedite payment. Remember that your policy is between you and the insurance company. It is the patient’s responsibility and obligation to ensure that hospital bills are paid promptly, regardless of pending litigation resulting in an injury caused by a third party. You have final responsibility for your bill.  See the insurance plans and networks we work with.


Balances Due After Insurance

You are responsible for any deductible, co-insurance or non-covered services identified by your insurance company. After the insurance payment has been processed by the hospital, you will receive a statement of the remaining amount due.

  • Patients without insurance receive a 25% uninsured discount, which is reflected on the patient statement.
