We continually strive to contain costs, while maintaining our commitment to excellence in medical care, by ensuring every appropriate effort is made to collect money owed to the health network for services provided.
Patients are responsible for the charges for services received. However, to assist patients in meeting their financial obligations, the health network will bill their health insurance carrier(s) for them, as long as a valid ID card and/or information regarding insurance coverage is presented at the time of registration.
The health network accepts assignments of benefits and maintains an active follow-up program with all insurance carriers. Insurance is billed as a courtesy to the patient and the patient remains responsible for contacting their insurance carrier to ensure prompt payment of their accounts. Patients should contact their insurance carrier if payment has not been made within 45 days. Accounts with delinquent balances or without adequate payment arrangements may be forwarded to a collection agency or attorney.
At the patient's request, a detailed bill may be provided. The health network will send periodic statements to the patient or responsible party in an effort to keep them informed as to the status of all open accounts.
The health network bills Medicare for inpatient and outpatient services. If additional insurance information is provided at the time of service, they will also be billed. Patients are responsible for any charges not covered by Medicare and/or your additional insurance.
Medicare deductible and coinsurance amounts for 2013
Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) costs
Part A monthly premium: Most people don’t pay a Part A premium because they paid Medicare taxes while working. If you don’t get premium-free Part A, you pay up to $441 each month.
For a hospital stay in 2013, you pay:
- $1,184 deductible per benefit period
- $0 for the first 60 days of each benefit period
- $296 per day for days 61–90 of each benefit period
- $592 per “lifetime reserve day” after day 90 of each benefit period (up to a maximum of 60 days over your lifetime)
For a skilled nursing facility stay in 2013, you pay:
- $0 for the first 20 days of each benefit period
- $148 per day for days 21–100 of each benefit period
- All costs for each day after day 100 of the benefit period
Medicare Part B (medical insurance) costs
Part B monthly premium: You pay a Part B premium each month. Most people will pay the standard premium amount. However, if your modified adjusted gross income as reported on your IRS tax return from 2 years ago is above a certain amount, you may pay more.
If you have questions about your Part B premium, call Social Security at 1‑800‑772‑1213. TTY users should call 1-800-325-0778. If you pay a late enrollment penalty, these amounts may be higher.
Part B deductible: $147 per year
Blue Cross policies
We bill all Blue Cross plans for inpatient and outpatient services. Blue Cross plans generally have deductibles and/or coinsurances. The deductible is an annual expense which you must pay before your insurance benefits can begin. Coinsurance is the portion of the total bill which is the patient and guarantor's responsibility to pay.
Commercial insurance policies
We bill all carriers for inpatient and outpatient services. Complete billing information required by the carrier or employer must be provided at the time of registration or admission. If your bill is the result of an accident/injury caused by someone else, remember that disputes between you and others do not, and should not, involve the health network.
