Financial Information for Patients
You are ultimately responsible for all hospital charges incurred. As a courtesy for our patients, our billing department will work with you by filing insurance claims on your behalf with your insurance company and working with patients and / or their responsible parties to get claims paid.
Once your insurance(s) have paid their portion of the bill, you will be responsible for paying the remaining balance. For any questions concerning financial responsibilities with hospital care or to make financial arrangements for a balance due, please call (985) 632-6401.
If you require financial assistance with your Lady of the Sea bill, we may have programs to help you.
Financial Assistance Information (Plain Language Summary)
Please contact our Financial Assistance office at (985) 632-8312 for more information.
"Charge" means the amount sought as payment by the hospital for a health care service or product before the application of any discount, write-off, contract or plan adjustment or allowance, or other reduction to such amount. A wide range of products and services are bundled into the price of a particular hospital service, including medications, supplies, tests and more. Hospital "reimbursement" varies from patient to patient based on the payments mandated by different insurance companies, health plans, and government payers such as Medicare and Medicaid. All of these factors combine to make specific advance pricing information difficult to provide on an individual basis. To begin the process of determining an estimated cost of services ordered by your physician, please call us at (985) 325-9377.
