Patient Price Information List

Disclaimer: Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center determines its standard charges for patient items and services through the use of a chargemaster system, which is a list of charges for the components of patient care that go into every patient’s bill. These are the baseline rates for items and services provided at the Hospital. The chargemaster is similar in concept to the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (“MSRP”) on a particular product or good. The charges listed provide only a general starting point in determining the potential costs of an individual patient’s care at the Hospital. This list does not reflect the actual out-of-pocket costs that may be paid by a patient for any particular service, it is not binding, and the actual charges for items and services may vary.

Many factors may influence the actual cost of an item or service, including insurance coverage, rates negotiated with payors, and so on. Government payors, such as Medicare and Medicaid for example, do not pay the chargemaster rates, but rather have their own set rates that hospitals are obligated to accept. Commercial insurance payments are based on contract negotiations with payors and may or may not reflect the standard charges. The cost of treatment also may be impacted by variables involved in a patient’s actual care, such as specific equipment or supplies required, the length of time spent in surgery or recovery, additional tests, or any changes in care or unexpected conditions or complications that arise. Moreover, the foregoing list of charges for services only includes charges from the Hospital. It does not reflect the charges for physicians, such as the surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist, pathologist, or other physician specialists or providers who may be involved in providing particular services to a patient. These charges are billed separately.

Individuals with questions about their out-of-pocket costs of service and other financial information should contact the hospital or consider contacting their insurers for further information.

BILLING PROCESS AND INFORMATION

How You Can Help

Thank you for choosing Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center for your healthcare needs. At Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center, we are committed to making the billing process as patient-friendly as possible. Here are some ways you can help the billing process go smoothly.

• Please give us complete health insurance information.

In addition to your health insurance card, we may ask for a photo ID. If you have been seen at Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center, let us know if your personal information or insurance information has changed since your last visit.

• Please understand and follow the requirements of your health plan.

Be sure to know your benefits, obtain proper authorization for services and submit referral claim forms if necessary. Many insurance plans require patients to pay a co-payment or deductible amount. You are responsible for paying co-payments required by your insurance provider and Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center is responsible for collecting co-payments. Please come to your appointment prepared to make your co-payment.

• Please respond promptly to any requests from your insurance provider.

You may receive multiple bills for your hospital visit, including your family doctor, specialists, physicians to read x-rays, give anesthesia, or do blood work. Insurance benefits are the result of your contract with your insurance company. We are a third-party to those benefits and may need your help with your insurance. If your insurance plan does not pay the bill within 90 days after billing, or your claim is denied, you will receive a statement from Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center indicating the bill is now your responsibility. All bills sent to you are due upon receipt.

Questions about Price and Billing Information

Our goal is for each of our patients and their families to have the best healthcare experience possible. Part of our commitment is to provide you with information that helps you make well informed decisions about your own care.

To ask questions or get more information about a bill for services you've received, please contact our Customer Call Center at (304) 354-9244.

If you need more information about the price of a future service, please contact our Price Hotline at (304) 354-9244. A CPT code is strongly encouraged when you call. You can obtain the CPT code from the ordering physician.

Online Payment, Registration, & Scheduling

For the convenience of our patients, a number of online services are available at https://www.mhhs.healthcare/. Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center offers secure online payment.

Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center also offers pre-registration and appointment requests through a secure online form at https://www.mhhs.healthcare/. Patients may pre-register for surgeries, admissions, outpatient procedures and tests at least three business days in advance. Patients may also pre-register for maternity services up to three months prior to their expected delivery date.

Financial Assistance

We are pleased to offer financial assistance to patients with limited resources and inadequate medical insurance coverage. Eligibility is determined by total family income/assets. The patient must agree to apply for other assistance available to pay hospital charges (Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance) before being discharged.

Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center's Charity Care Policy

Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center's charity care policy includes:

• Substantial charity care guidelines that provide free care for individuals and families who earn less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level.

• Sliding scale fees to provide substantially discounted care for individuals and families who are between 200 and 400 percent of the federal poverty level.

• Hardship policy for those patients who would not otherwise qualify for charity care but have unique circumstances.
