If you do not have insurance, are unable to provide CaroMont Health with
adequate insurance filing information, or wish to file your own claims,
you must either pay CaroMont Health in full or make satisfactory financial
arrangements prior to or at time of service. If you do not pay your bill
in full at time of service, you will be required to provide information
needed to complete the Financial/Credit Application. This application
helps us determine your payment arrangements or eligibility for assistance
programs. All requests for payments prior to or at time of service are
estimated amounts due.
All uninsured patients will automatically be eligible for a discount comparable
to those given to patients covered by Managed Care Insurance Plans.
CaroMont Health appreciates prompt payment of outstanding balances. To
show our appreciation, discounts may be offered to you if you pay your
account balance in full at time of service.
Cosmetic procedures are required to be paid in full prior to the service
being provided. Since discounts are already considered in the charge,
prompt pay discounts do not apply.
Motor Vehicle/Other Non-Work Related Accident
Medical expenses incurred as a result of a motor vehicle or other non-work
related accident will be your personal responsibility. It is our policy
to file your medical insurance first, but CaroMont Health will also file
claims to the liability carrier or attorney as a courtesy for emergency
or urgent services. If you have no other insurance coverage or choose
not to file your medical insurance, you will be responsible for the bill
at the time of service. CaroMont
Health does not become involved in disputes arising from liability claims.
Any unpaid balance will be billed to you shortly after your service. Payment
in full is due upon receipt of the statement if prior arrangements have
not been made with a financial counselor. If the entire balance is not
paid by the due date, CaroMont Health may apply finance charges, late
fees and/or the reasonable costs and fees of collection. Accounts are
considered past due if your payment has not been received within 25 days
of the date of the statement. If your account becomes past due, CaroMont
Health will take appropriate action to recover the amount due. Possible
collection actions include transferring the account to a collection agency,
applying the debt on your responsible party’s credit report and/or
taking legal action.
If you are unable to pay your balance by the due date, it is your responsibility
to contact the Billing Office to discuss your options.
