PAY NOW

We realize that it can be difficult to understand health insurance coverage and medical bills.  We hope you’ll find the following tips helpful:

BILLING
You will receive a bill from us after your insurance company has paid their portion of the bill or, if you do not have insurance or have not provided LRMC with your insurance information, you will receive our bill within 30 days after your visit to LRMC.

  • If you believe the bill is in error, you should immediately contact us to discuss the bill and, if appropriate, we will adjust the bill.
  • If you cannot pay your bill, please contact us for financial assistance.
  • If you do not pay your bill and do not contact us to arrange for financial assistance, we will continue to try to collect the money you owe us by calling you and mailing your bills.

Ultimately, unpaid bills will be sent to a collection agency.

Copay– A copay is the fixed amount you pay for a covered health care service, usually paid when you receive the service.  The amount can vary by the type of covered health care service.  The insurance company determines the copayment amount and you are responsible for paying this when you check in.

Deductible– Your deductible is a specified amount of money you must pay before an insurance company will pay a claim.  Deductibles usually renew every January, or when your insurance policy begins, and may not apply to all services.

Network– Many insurance plans also have networks.  Generally, your costs will be lower if you utilize services that are defined as “in network” by your insurance company, and you will pay a higher percentage of costs if the care your receive is defined as “out of network.”

We have financial counselors who can assist you in applying for insurance, understanding your bill, and applying for financial assistance.  Please contact us at (208) 527-8206 if you would like assistance.
