Billing and Insurance
As a courtesy to our patients, we will bill the insurance carrier on your behalf. However, payment is ultimately the patient's responsibility. Due to timely filing deadlines required by certain insurance companies, it is imperative that you supply us with the accurate information at the time of service. Please ensure the admissions department has collected all necessary information before you leave the hospital.
Prior to or during your inpatient hospital stay, we will verify your insurance coverage. Based upon this verification, we may ask you for a deposit at the time of service. To meet this pre-payment, you may use Mastercard, Visa, Discover, American Express, personal check or cash.
The billing statement you receive from East Georgia Regional Medical Center is for hospital services only. You may also receive statements for professional services provided to you, such as your personal physician, surgeon, radiologist, pathologist and anesthesia services.
