Insurance & Billing


If you have hospitalization insurance, the Medical Center will bill and accept payment from your insurance company provided that certain conditions are met. However, you are responsible for payment of your hospital bill regardless of insurance coverage. In the event your service is not covered, you will be billed for payment in full. Any non-covered charges, such as deductible, co-pay or co-insurance by insurance, will be due prior to, or at the time of service.

A deposit is required for patients with insufficient hospitalization insurance. For information on deposit requirements, contact the Patient Accounts Department at 256-329-7102.
