Paying your bill
Managing your bills after receiving
care can be overwhelming. It’s common to have several different
providers participate in your care. Afterwards, you may receive
separate invoices from each of those providers.
We understand the added stress this can
cause and are here to help. We offer patient financial services to
help you understand your bill and make the payment process easier.
For more information about paying your
bill, call our billing center, Monday through Friday between 7 a.m.
and 6 p.m., toll-free at 1-888-844-0080. For your convenience, we accept most
forms of payment including cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, American
Express and Discover credit cards. You can also make payments online.
Health insurance plans
In most cases, we will bill your
primary health insurance company directly. If we haven't heard from
your insurer after 30 to 45 days, we may ask for your help in contacting
them. Amounts that are denied, rejected or unpaid may become your
responsibility, depending on your plan type and benefits. Learn
more about our accepted insurance plans.
