Credit and Collection Practices
Insurance claims are submitted within days of service to Medicare, Medicaid, Commercial, Managed Care, Liability and all other carriers. Patients are expected to pay any known co-payments, deductibles and non-covered amounts when services are received. All requests for payment are based upon ESTIMATED amounts and are not considered final billing totals. Any remaining balances due will be billed to you once your insurance company has paid or denied. Balances are due and payable upon receipt of your statement. Insurance claims are submitted as a courtesy and do not relieve patients of financial obligations.
If a patient’s account (s) becomes past due, Haywood Regional Medical Center may pursue outside collection activity including legal action if necessary.
Itemized or summary statements are available to you upon request.
