Know what to expect from your bill.
Logansport Memorial Hospital is committed to helping patients address their financial concerns and questions. We’re ready to address any issue that you may have with your statement or invoice, from answering questions on your bill to directing you to the proper assistance in case of financial hardship.
Insurance information is obtained from you or your representative prior to or at the time of admission. LMH will file claim(s) on your behalf based on the insurance information you provided and the benefits you assigned to the hospital as part of your financial agreement you signed at the time of service.
Your insurance should pay your claims according to your policy benefit plan. If you have questions about your insurance, please read your insurance card, policy or other material from the company to find a phone number to call for information. If your employer provides insurance, you may also call your employer’s benefits office for assistance.
If you have been treated at LMH, you may receive several bills for medical care. Your hospital bill does not include the fees of your physician(s) or consulting physician(s). Fees for professional services rendered to you by radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, emergency room and ambulance are also not included on your hospital bill. Fees for these professional services are billed directly by the physicians providing services.
For the financial health of the hospital, financial arrangement for payment is required at the time of service. Depending on your insurance benefits, the amount collected at your visit may be based on estimated charges. We will require payment for the part of your hospital service or physician bills not covered by your insurance plan. This may include co-payments and/or co-insurance amounts.
To assist you in meeting your payment obligations, LMH has the following payment options:
Cash, checks, money orders
Debit or credit cards, including VISA, Master Card, and Discover
Online payment – it’s easy, secure and convenient
For patients with the ability to pay their bill, it is the obligation of the patient to pay the hospital in a timely manner. LMH makes every effort to see that patient accounts are properly billed and patients may expect to receive a uniform summary statement after discharge from an inpatient stay, outpatient visit or Logansport Memorial Physician network visit. It is your responsibility to provide the correct insurance information.
