-A deductible is the initial amount of “covered” health costs that you pay before your insurance plan begins reimbursement. A deductible is usually a set dollar amount.
-A co-insurance is the portion of your health care expenses not covered by insurance. A co-insurance is usually a percentage figure, like 10% or 20%
-A co-pay is usually a set amount you owe per visit or per service. Co-pays are usually associated with ER visits, Physical Therapy or other outpatient services.
-Payment of deductibles, copays and coinsurance is due at the time of service.
-The hospital will file the claim for you. After insurance carrier has made payment, you will receive a bill asking for payment on the balance.
-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.
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.
