If you are covered by health insurance, please remember that this is a contract between you and your insurance carrier. The hospital will bill your insurance company as a courtesy to you. If your insurance company does not respond within 45 days of service, the account will be considered past due and thus is your responsibility. All co-insurance, deductibles, and denied claims are due within 30 days.
To insure proper processing of your claims, it is vital that you supply KVH Hospital with accurate and up-to-date information. Please bring your insurance cards with you at the time of your visit. This includes any necessary patient-completed forms your insurance carrier may require.
Some insurance carriers require pre-authorization or referral forms prior to a procedure. It is the patient's responsibility to know whether or not they need to obtain pre-authorization or referral for the procedure.
The hospital will bill directly government programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Labor-Industrial Insurance.
Payment is expected in full 30 days from date of service. Patient Financial Service staff can arrange terms on balances, if you are unable to pay in full within 30 days.
If you do not have medical insurance, you may be eligible for funding through one of several agencies. Each agency has special criteria on which funding is granted.
If you do not qualify for agency aid, the hospital's own Financial Assistance Program may be able to help. Before any additional help is available, however, you must have exhausted all other means of payment.
You should be aware that you will receive a separate bill from your physician and possibly anesthesiologist, pathologist, and radiologist. Questions regarding your bill from any physician should be directed to their respective billing departments.
