BUSINESS OFFICE FAQ
Q. What do I need to do if I think there is an error on my bill?
A. If you think there has been an error on your bill please contact Customer Service 270.697.6161. We will review the medical records and compare with the charges for complete accuracy. As accurate as we try to be occasionally human error intercedes. When this happens we want to be as quick and accurate as possible in correcting any error on our part.
Q. What happens if I cannot pay my bill?
A. We have programs to assist patients that cannot pay and have no insurance. We can assist in seeking State and Federal funding. We have a financial assistance program which helps our patients when there is no other means of payment. There is some paper work involved, but we have staff available to assist you.
Q. Do you have payment programs?
A. Yes, we have 3 established payment programs. Customer Service will assist you with understanding each program and set you up with one that best meets your financial situation and our requirements.
With the WE CARE™ Patient Payment Program from Medfinancial, you have the choice to break your payments into affordable monthly installments spread over 12, 24, 36, 48, or 60 months. The 12 month option even offers ZERO PERCENT interest!
The WE CARE™ Patient Payment Program from Medfinancial Services provides an alternative to patients in financing out-of-pocket medical expenses that are not covered by insurance.
