Billing & Insurance at Jupiter Medical Center

Your hospitalization coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company to provide reimbursement for services provided. Jupiter Medical Center 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.

  • Aetna
  • AvMed
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida
  • Care Plus Health Plans

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.

Billing

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.
