Medical Bill Guide
Understanding your medical bills can be confusing. Your patient statement includes information such as your account number (a separate account number is assigned per date of service), a listing of the date you received medical care, the type of health care service you received, the amount you have already paid for your medical care, and the amount that is still outstanding pending any health insurance or medical assistance payment. If your health insurance provider does not pay the balance in full, you are responsible for paying the remaining balance.
If you have questions about your patient statement, you do not understand your patient statement, or you believe you received a patient statement in error, please call the Patient Account Office at 610-776-4566.
