Accepted Health Plans and Insurance Providers

 

We have outlined the most common health plans we participate with. Please contact your health plan directly to verify if your insurance plan is participating with our hospital and to verify authorization requirements as some insurance plans utilize narrow networks which may exclude our facility.


 

Billings and Collection Policy

 

All patient balances generated after time of service for either non-insured patients or insured patients with remaining financial responsibility will be handled in accordance with this policy.


 

Contracted Providers Billing Separately

 

Patient families should contact the providers they anticipate will be providing treatment regarding the insurance they accept and request a personalized estimate, since they will be billing separately from the hospital bill. These independently contracted providers can include surgeons, radiologists, anesthesiologists, emergency department physicians, and pathologists.
