First: an explanation

When you go to the hospital for treatment, you may receive two bills: one from the hospital (facility or testing fee) and one from the clinicians who provided your care (professional fee). The professional fee is what you are billed for from USACS. Keep reading for other frequently asked questions about billing.

FAQs

You are receiving a bill because either you or a dependent of yours was a patient at a hospital, emergency room, urgent care center, skilled nursing facility or observation unit. The charges on this bill are for the physician(s) in our group who treated you or a dependent. Our clinicians are not paid by the hospital/facility. The physicians and hospital/facility bill their charges separately. The services that are provided by our physicians may include: emergency, observation, hospitalist or urgent care treatment. One visit can result in more than one bill because hospitals also charge facility fees and testing fees.

There are several factors that are reviewed when determining physician charges. The history and physical examination, the nature of the symptoms, the level of care needed and the medical decision-making are all factors. Physician charges are NOT determined based on the length of time you saw the physician.

If you had insurance on the date of this service, check the amounts of any credits listed in the Payments/Adjustments column to see what has been paid and by whom. You may have received an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your insurance carrier that can be matched to this statement for comparison. If you’re uncertain, please call your insurance company to check the status of this claim.

After your insurance has paid, you may also be billed for copayment, deductible and coinsurance amounts. You may also be billed for services that your insurance considers not covered, not medically necessary, over usual and customary or out of network. You have the right to appeal claims denied by your insurance if you feel this determination was not appropriate.

Your insurance did not complete an Assignment of Benefits for the services provided and may have sent the payment directly to you or the subscriber.

Payment in full is due when you receive the bill, however, we may be able to offer a payment plan on balances unpaid by your insurance. Please call our Patient Services Department at 855-687-0618 to speak with someone to determine if you qualify for payment arrangements.
