Collection Policy:

The patient will be informed of his/her patient responsibility in the form of a patient statement generated on a monthly basis.

If a patient has additional financial responsibilities after the final insurance claim has been processed (other than what was collected pre procedure), it is our policy to send one or more bills to the patient.

If a patient informs us that he/she is not able to fully pay his/her responsibility, Care Credit is available and allows monthly payments to be made.

If the account is not paid by the due date on the patient statement and after the third monthly statement has been mailed, we will attempt a courtesy call to the patient in order to collect payment in full.

If payment in full is not made within 24 hours, the collector will forward the account to the Business Office Director for review and approval to be referred to an outside collection agency.

Special Note: If a patient has a previous bad debt or outstanding balance from a prior visit, the account must be paid in full prior to any future appointments.

 

Charity Care:

If a patient is unable to pay their cost share for his/her procedure in full on or before services are provided because he/she believes he/she is medically indigent, or are not covered by any health insurance or health maintenance organization (HMO), upon request, Facility, in its sole discretion, may offer the patient or prospective patient a discount on the amount due and/or offer a payment plan.

Any such discount is considered by Facility to be charity care.

There is not a formal application process for obtaining charity care at Facility.

The patient’s attending physician, and other health care providers, such as the anesthesiologist, durable medical supplier, pathology, and/or the laboratory service provider(s) are not a part of the Facility’s fees. If any of these providers delivered services to the patient during their short stay at the Facility, each of the provider(s) will bill separately for their services rendered. Such health care providers may or may not participate with the same health insurers or health maintenance organizations as the facility.

 

Payment Bundle ResourcesInformation on payments made to the facility for defined bundles of services and procedures is available at http://pricing.floridahealthfinder.gov/. The service bundle information is a non-personalized estimate of costs that may be incurred by the patient for anticipated services, and actual costs will be based on services actually provided to the patient. The patient can request a personalized estimate from the center at any time before or after the procedure is performed. Patients should contact the health care practitioners anticipated to provide services to the patient while in the center regarding a personalized estimate, billing practices and participation with patient’s insurance provider or HMO as the practitioners may not participate with the same insurers or HMO as the center.
