Billing & Insurance
Let us assist you.
Your procedure is over, your stay with us has ended, but now you may have additional paperwork to fill out. We can help. From forms and financial questions to working with Medicare or your insurance provider, Union County Hospital is as passionate about assisting patients with what happens after a medical procedure or emergency as with the care that occurs during it. Use the information in this section to help the billing and payment process go smoothly.
What is the billing process?
We’ll bill your insurance company in a timely manner and do everything we can to expedite your claim. But remember, payment is ultimately your responsibility. If we bill your insurer, and the account is not taken care of, we’ll look to you for final settlement of your bill.
Otherwise, we accept:
- Money Order
- American Express
If you can’t pay your bill, we may be able to help. You may be eligible for financial assistance programs.
If you have questions about your bill, please be sure to have your patient number and date of the hospital visit handy and call 833-282-0472.
