Billing & Insurance at Jupiter Medical Center
Your hospitalization coverage is a contract between you and your insurance
company to provide reimbursement for services provided.You have the right
to request a personalized estimate from Jupiter Medical Center. We will
make every effort to verify your insurance coverage with your carrier
at the time of or prior to your admission. We will do our best to ensure
that you get all the benefits that your policy allows. Most hospital insurance
plans do not provide full coverage of your hospital bill. If payment is
not received within 45 days of the initial claim filing, we will request
your assistance in determining the reason for the payment delay. We will
cooperate in expediting your claim, but you are ultimately responsible
for your account.
We accept insurance from the following:
Please note that services may be provided in the hospital by the facility
as well as by other health care providers who may separately bill the
patient. These health care providers may or may not participate with the
same health insurers or HMOs as the hospital. Prospective patients should
contact the health care practitioner who will provide services in the
hospital to determine which health insurers and HMOs the practitioner
participates in as a network provider or preferred provider.
You may request an itemized statement from the hospital that will reflect
a detailed list of charges for your hospital care and all the supplies
and services ordered by your physician. If you need an insurance form
for other insurance, we can provide you with a copy, after your bill is
paid in full.
Private practice physicians are not employed by the hospital and will send
you a separate bill for services provided during your stay. Your physician
may have requested consultations and/or services from other physicians,
such as radiologists, emergency physicians, pathologists, and anesthesiologists.
These physicians are also in private practice and will bill you separately.
