Billing and Insurance

Evangelical Community Hospital, its network of employed practices, and outpatient services are committed to helping you understand and meet your financial obligations. We consider it part of the care process and we strive to deliver the same level of service in supporting you through payment of bills as we do in the exam room, the operating room, or anywhere in our organization.

Billing

You can pay your hospital bill or your bill from an employed practice online. You may also receive bills from Quantum Imaging or Logix Health for services provided at the Hospital. These bills cannot be paid through this portal.

Hospital Bill and Physician Fees

Hospital Bill

Your hospital bill will be based on the services you receive while you are a patient in the Hospital. This may include charges for your room, nursing care, pharmaceuticals, and other hospital services. Room charges will vary based on the unit and level of care you are provided. Your bill may also include any outstanding or unpaid balances from pre-hospitalization testing you may have received.

Physician Fees

Your physician fees are not included in your hospital bill. You will receive separate bills from your attending physicians and/or surgeons who participated in your diagnosis and treatment.

Also, specialists such as anesthesiologists, radiologists, and cardiologists will bill you separately for their services. These are specialists with whom you may or may not have had direct personal interactions. Their service to you, however, is critical to quality patient care and is appropriately billable to your stay. 

Billing of Out-of-Network Patients

If you are not a participant of a health plan with which Evangelical Community Hospital has a contract as a participating provider, you may be financially responsible for the costs of some or all of the care or services provided to you by Evangelical.  To determine whether Evangelical is a participating provider, you must contact your health plan.  Regardless of plan participation, you ultimately are responsible for paying your bill.

The purpose of this policy is to describe the billing and collection policy for Evangelical Community Hospital and its employed medical partners. It is intended to meet the requirements of applicable federal, state, and local laws, including, without limitation, section 501(r) of the Internal Revenue  Code of 1986, as amended, and the regulations thereunder.

This policy establishes the actions that may be taken in the event of nonpayment for medical care provided, including but not limited to extraordinary collection actions. The guiding principles behind this policy are to treat all patients and the individuals responsible equally with dignity and respect.
In addition, the purpose of the policy is to ensure appropriate billing and collection procedures are uniformly followed and to ensure that responsible efforts are made to determine whether the patient or individuals responsible for payment of all or a portion of a patient account is eligible for assistance under the Financial Assistance Program.
