Charges Not Included in Your Hospital Bill

  • Fees for professional services of your attending physician
  • Fees for professional services of any consulting physician
  • Anesthesia professional fee
  • Emergency Room professional fee
  • Radiology professional fee
  • Pathology professional fee
  • Pain Clinic professional fee

These fees are billed separately by each professional group and statements are sent directly to you. You will notice that if you had anesthesia services, x-rays, laboratory tests, Pain Clinic services, mental health services or if you were seen in the Emergency Room you will be charged both from the hospital and from the respective professional group. The charge on the hospital bill represents use of our equipment and materials necessary to perform the tests.

The charges you receive from Bothwell Anesthesia Services, Clinical Radiological Consultants, Boyce and Bynum, Inc., Pain Clinic or the Emergency Room are their professional fees for administering, reading, reviewing your tests or caring for you in the Emergency Room.

Insurance

In-Patients

We accept insurance assignments in lieu of payment once you have signed the “assignments of benefits” in favor of the hospital. Those charges not covered by insurance are due at the time you are discharged. The remaining portion of your bill will become your responsibility directly if insurance does not pay the hospital within 45 days from the date we file your claim. This includes cases involving litigation for settlement of the hospital account, unless other arrangements have been made.

Out-Patients

We accept insurance assignments for Medicare, Mo. Healthnet, Blue Cross & Commercial Insurance Carriers. All other patients receiving out-patient hospital services are requested to pay their bill at the time of service.

For insurance questions

Please call the number that corresponds with the first letter of your last name.

Cash Accounts

If you do not carry hospital insurance, you should have made arrangements with your Patient Representative, before or at the time of discharge, for payment of your hospital account. If we missed seeing you, please contact your Patient Representative today.

We offer financial assistance for self-pay patients for services that are medically necessary but not for elective services. For more information, please visit the Financial Assistance page.
