About your bill:
This bill is for services rendered by the Emergency Physician. The Emergency Physician is a doctor specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of acute illnesses and injuries. The hospital has requested the services of an Emergency Physician in supervising the care you receive in the Emergency Department.
The Emergency Physician is responsible for the diagnosis, treatment, referral and/or discharge of all patients receiving care in the Emergency Department. If you receive an additional bill from the Hospital, it will be for use of the Hospital’s supplies, equipment and technical personnel, and will not include the Emergency Physician’s fee.

How do I contact the doctor who treated me?

You can send any correspondence to the billing office and our staff will forward your concerns to the attending physician. Please mail your correspondence to the address listed on your invoice or email us. You may also use the question form on this page.
Can I get a copy of my chart?
We do not have your official medical records in our office. You can contact the Medical Records Department at the facility you were treated in for a copy of the complete medical record.
Clarification of the diagnosis?
Due to patient confidentiality we cannot discuss diagnosis issues on the phone. You can email us or fax your question or mail your questions to the address on your invoice. We will forward your concerns to the attending physician for clarification.
What if I am due a refund?
Credit balance accounts are reviewed to determine if there is a refund due to the patient or insurance carrier. Refunds take 6 to 8 weeks from the time of the credit balance review for processing. If you think that you are due a refund you can call our office. You may also use the question form on this page.
Have you received payment from my insurance carrier?
We have found it can take up to two weeks for insurance companies to issue and mail insurance payments after they have sent the patient an explanation of benefits. We will gladly put a 30 day hold on your account once you contact us that payment has been sent. After 30 days your billing cycle will resume if no payment has been received.
I applied for Charity Care. Why am I receiving this bill?
Charity Care applies to the hospital charges only. Physician services are not reimbursed under Charity Care. We can submit to your health insurance. If you are not covered by insurance we would be happy to set you up on an interest free payment plan.
