I received notice that my insurance company has paid part of my bill, but I don't understand how they calculated the payment amount. Can you help me?

For answers to any questions about insurance payments, deductibles or copayments, you should check with your insurance carrier. If we have received information from your insurance carrier, we will share it with you.

Why am I getting bills from physicians?

Each physician who provides services will send you a separate bill from his or her office. These may include your primary physician, others who conducted tests and procedures and those chosen to read your test results. If you have questions about these bills or related insurance coverage, please call the physician’s office listed on the billing statement.

Does Regions Hospital offer payment options?

Total payment is due for the patient’s portion of the medical bill at time of leave. We accept cash, checks (including money orders) and credit cards. If you are unable to pay the full balance, monthly payments based on a payment schedule are acceptable. Please contact Customer Service at 651-254-4791 or 877-974-3600 to establish a payment plan that is mutually agreeable.

Can I obtain financial assistance to cover my bill?

We do offer help to patients who are unable to pay their bills in a timely fashion. Call 651-254-4791 or 877-974-3600, to request a form. When we receive the completed form and supporting documents, they will be reviewed. You will then be notified with the decision.

Why must I pay for a copy of my medical record?

Releasing health information to other health care providers, patients and users is a basic function with health information. However, there is a charge for this service because of the time and expense, including proper authorization, processing and postage costs.
