Murray-Calloway County Hospitalís Miracle Moments
Prepayment Plan provides a way for you to know the
approximate cost of your delivery as well as the
approximate cost of the care for you and baby following
the delivery of your child. You may decide to begin
paying some or all of the costs not covered by your
Your payment schedule is dependent upon whether you
have a vaginal or planned cesarean delivery and whether
you have complete, partial or no insurance coverage.
If you have insurance coverage, you will be asked to
pay only the portion not covered by insurance. You may
pay this in installments or in a lump sum.
If your total hospital bill is below the amount you
prepaid, you will receive a refund within a reasonable
time after you leave the hospital. Should your total
hospital bill exceed your prepaid fee because of
multiple births, cesarean birth or a longer stay for
mother or baby due to illness or complications, your
prepaid fee will go toward your total hospital bill.
You will be billed for the excess approximately two (2)
weeks after you leave the hospital.
The prepayment plan does not include any tests or
procedures such as fetal monitoring or ultrasound which
you may have as an outpatient before you are admitted
to the hospital for the delivery of your baby, nor does
it cover non-hospital charges such as physician,
pediatrician, anesthesiologist, or radiologist fees.
We encourage you to begin prepayment as early in
your pregnancy as possible. You may sign up for the
prepayment plan when you preregister at the Admitting
Office in the hospital. This can be done as early as
eight weeks into your pregnancy.
