Understanding Fees and Billing
At US Acute Care Solutions, it is our mission to care for patients, and we will do that from the time you step foot in the hospital to the time you pay your bill. We consider it a privilege to care for you in the hospital, and we will answer any questions you have about your bill.
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.
This is your portal to take you to where you can:
- View your bill
- Pay your bill
Payments and Customer Service
Our automated attendant is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help you pay your bill or check your balance.
Methods of Payment
We accept all of the following:
Personal check (via U.S. mail)
Money orders (via U.S. mail)
Health Savings Account (HSA)
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.
