We provide assistance in facilitating insurance pre-certification and authorization from health benefits providers for patients 18 years of age and older, including:
• Buckeye Community plan
• Most private insurance
• Medicare and Medicaid*
• Self-pay patients
* Please note that we only bill Medicaid as a secondary provider.
Upon admission it is the patient’s responsibility to provide accurate insurance information. Payment for applicable insurance deductibles or copayments must be made at the time of admission. If at any time the insurance company denies coverage and the patient remains hospitalized, a request will be made for the patient and/or financially responsible party to sign an agreement to pay for services rendered.
Self-pay patients are required to make a deposit covering the initial five days of hospitalization. The unused portion of the deposit will be reimbursed after discharge from the hospital.
