How much is my deductible and coinsurance?

Your deductible and coinsurance amounts are determined by the insurance plan in which you are enrolled. This information should be included in your insurance benefits handbook. If you cannot find this information or have other questions, contact your insurance provider.

Will I be asked to make any payment when I come to a Hamilton Hospital?

Depending on the type of insurance you have, you may be asked to pay your coinsurance, co-pay, and/or deductible.

I can’t pay my whole bill at once. Can I make payment arrangements?

To make payment arrangements, call our Customer Service Line at (940)564.5521. One of our Customer Service Representatives will work with you.

I am also covered on my spouse’s insurance policy. Will you send bills to both insurance companies?

Hamilton Hospital’s Patient Finance Department will coordinate benefits for patients covered by more than one insurance policy. To do this, make sure we are provided with a copy of both insurance cards.

I keep getting bills from you. Why don’t you bill my insurance company?

Hamilton Hospital’s patient billing department will send you letters 30, 60 and 90 days after the date of service. Please read this correspondence carefully, as it contains important information regarding the status of your account. If you are covered under an insurance policy or another party is responsible for your hospital bill, yet you receive a letter stating that you are responsible for the bill, contact a Customer Service Representative at (940) 564.5521, immediately.

I would like a copy of my hospital bill. How can I request one?

Call a Customer Service Representative at (940) 564.5521 to request a copy of your hospital bill. You can expect to receive a copy of your bill within 7 to 10 days.

How soon after I leave the hospital will I receive a bill?

You can expect a bill once we have received payment or denial of payment from your insurance company. If you are paying the bill yourself (that is, if you are not filing with an insurance provider) you should receive a bill within 10 days after you have received service.

Where can I call if I have questions about my hospital bill?

You may call the Patient Financial Services department at (940)564.5521 or (940)564.8112 from 8 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
