Your insurance company may require prior-authorization or pre-certification for treatment. Please discuss this in advance with your physician and contact your insurance company to ensure treatment coverage. Your physician may provide this service for you. In some cases, insurance plans will not pay for hospital costs if patients do not pre-certify before coming to the hospital. In this case, you could be liable for that entire expense. Be sure to follow the terms of your plan. Contact your employer or insurance company with any specific questions about what is or is not covered by your insurance plan. Our filing of claims with your insurance company does not guarantee coverage or payment.
Medicaid requires most services to be authorized by the patient’s Primary Care Physician. Therefore, in addition to the pre-certification, Medicaid requires a referral from your Primary Care Physician before the hospital is reimbursed for services it provides you.

As a courtesy to you, we will file all hospital-related medical claims with your insurance. Because benefits vary with each insurance plan, we automatically bill the claim for the full amount of the service. In addition, we will be sending you periodic billing statements with messages advising you of the status of your account. If a statement advises you that your insurance has not paid, please assist us in expediting the payment process by calling your insurance company for a claim status. Continual open communications between you and our department will result in quicker claims resolution.
During your visit to the hospital, you may experience a variety of tests, procedures and services. Many of these services are performed by healthcare providers who work in the hospital but bill separately for their services. After your visit, you may receive bills from several different healthcare providers, such as an anesthesiologist, radiologist, pathologist, ER physician, ambulance, CRNA or your physician. Any questions about these other bills should be directed to those physicians’ offices.
Hospitals often consult with specialized doctors as part of their efforts to provide the best care for their patients. Sometimes these specialists are sent items like lab tests or X-rays to help provide their expert review. You will receive a bill directly from those doctors for their work.
We make several attempts to contact you during the normal course of our billing process to let you know what portion of your bill you are personally responsible for. This amount is calculated after we have received payment or denial from your insurance company. Therefore, you may receive letters or calls from a collection agency if, after several attempts to contact you, we have had no response.
