1. What is the best way for me to pay my hospital bills?
Unpaid balances, including all applicable co-payments, co-insurance, deductibles and any non-covered services are the responsibility of the patient and must be paid upon receipt of the statement. For your convenience we accept a variety of payment methods.
Short term payment plans are available for balances. Any payment plan other than payment-in-full must be agreed to by the Business Office before considered accepted.
Black River Medical Center does offer discounts if you are without insurance. Financial Assistance is available for those who are unable to pay for all or part of their hospital bill. An application must be completed to determine eligibility. Please contact our Business Office at (573) 727-9080.
2. What is a deductible? What is a Co-paymnet?
3. Who is responsible for paying my bill?
The hospital will bill your insurance company directly (unless you specify otherwise), you are ultimately responsible for making certain that your bill is paid.
Monthly statements are sent to keep you informed about the status of open accounts. If a balance remains after your insurance has issued a payment or a denial, payment is due immediately upon receipt of your statement.
4. What other bills will I receive?
In addition to your bill from the hospital, you may receive bills from other physicians who may have provided services to you. For instance, you may receive bills from consulting physicians, radiologists, or other specialists. Please contact their office directly if you have questions concerning their bills.
5. What if I have a question about my bill?
If you have a billing or balance question about your Black River Medical Center’s visit, please contact the Business Office department by phone at (573) 727- 9080. Office hours are 8:30am-5pm, Monday through Friday. At a patients request, a detailed bill may be provided.
