If you have insurance (including Medicare and Medicaid) the billing office will bill your insurance carrier shortly after your visit. If you have more than one insurance carrier, such as a supplement to Medicare, we will submit your bill to the additional carrier after notification from your primary insurance carrier. If you receive a bill from us before we have heard from your insurance company, the amount submitted to your insurance company will be in the Insurance Pending column. Your insurance carrier should pay on your bill within 60-days. However, the hospital may ask for your help in contacting them should payment be delayed.
If you do not have insurance your bill will be sent directly to you (or the guarantor) for payment of the bill.
If you owe a balance the hospital will send you a bill. The amount not covered by your insurance carrier will be listed in the Patient Pay column and in the Amount Due Now box. Payment in full is expected as indicated on the statements.
If your bill is paid within 7 days of the first statement after insurance pays a discount applies as follows:
|Out of Pocket||Pay Discount|
|$500 - $2,500||2%|
|$2,500 and over||5%|
If payment in full cannot be made please call the billing department at 402-367-1352.
Payment arrangements can be made to pay your bill in full within 6 to 10 months. If you are unable to pay the balance in full within 10 months, you will be referred to the bank loan program. Butler County Health will assist you in completing the loan application form and submitting it to the bank.
You may be eligible for financial assistance to reduce the cost of service. This is determined based on your household income level. For determination of eligibility and applications for community benefit financial assistance please contact the billing department at Butler County Health.
