Patient Price Information List

Disclaimer: Owensboro Health Regional Hospital determines its standard charges for patient items and services through the use of a chargemaster system, which is a list of charges for the components of patient care that go into every patient’s bill. These are the baseline rates for items and services provided at the Hospital. The chargemaster is similar in concept to the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (“MSRP”) on a particular product or good. The charges listed provide only a general starting point in determining the potential costs of an individual patient’s care at the Hospital. This list does not reflect the actual out-of-pocket costs that may be paid by a patient for any particular service, it is not binding, and the actual charges for items and services may vary.

Many factors may influence the actual cost of an item or service, including insurance coverage, rates negotiated with payors, and so on. Government payors, such as Medicare and Medicaid for example, do not pay the chargemaster rates, but rather have their own set rates that hospitals are obligated to accept. Commercial insurance payments are based on contract negotiations with payors and may or may not reflect the standard charges. The cost of treatment also may be impacted by variables involved in a patient’s actual care, such as specific equipment or supplies required, the length of time spent in surgery or recovery, additional tests, or any changes in care or unexpected conditions or complications that arise. Moreover, the foregoing list of charges for services only includes charges from the Hospital. It does not reflect the charges for physicians, such as the surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist, pathologist, or other physician specialists or providers who may be involved in providing particular services to a patient. These charges are billed separately.

Individuals with questions about their out-of-pocket costs of service and other financial information should contact the hospital or consider contacting their insurers for further information.

BILLING PROCESS AND INFORMATION

OUR BILLING PROCESS AND INFORMATION

Thank you for choosing Owensboro Health for your healthcare needs. As part of our commitment to delivering EXCELLENT service, we want to make understanding and paying your bill as easy as possible. Here are some ways you can help us as we work to make the billing process go smoothly.

• Provide us complete and up-to-date health insurance information

In addition to asking for your health insurance card at your visit, we may ask for a photo ID. If you have been seen at Owensboro Health before, please let us know if your personal or insurance information has changed since your last visit.

• Understand and follow the requirements of your health insurance plan

Understanding your health insurance benefits can be a big help to you and to us! Being familiar with your benefits can help you obtain proper authorizations for services, and make it easier to submit referral claim forms when required. Many insurance plans require patients to pay a copayment or deductible amount for services. Please be prepared to make payments at your visit as defined by your insurance coverage.

• Please respond promptly to any requests from your insurance provider

Your insurance benefits are a contract with your insurance company. Owensboro Health is reimbursed by your insurance, and at times we may need your help to communicate effectively with your insurance company. All bills sent to you are due upon receipt*.

*Owensboro Health does not charge interest on any amount not paid in full during the normal course of collection.

Pricing and Billing Information

Owensboro Health’s goal is for each of our patients and their families to have the best healthcare experience possible. That is why we are committed to providing you with information that helps you make well-informed decisions about your care.

If you have questions or need more information about a bill for services you’ve received or for information about the price of a future service, please contact our Customer Service Team at (270) 685- 7500 or (866) 305-3737, or send an email to FinancialAssistance@OwensboroHealth.org. To ensure the most accurate information possible about the price of a future service, a CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) code will be needed when you call. You can get a CPT code from the provider ordering your test or procedure.

Online Payment, Registration and Scheduling

For the convenience of our patients, Owensboro Health offers secure online payment for Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and Owensboro Health Medical Group bills. Please visit our payment portal online at www.OwensboroHealth.org/Billing.

We offer the option to make appointment requests for the Owensboro Health Medical Group providers through MyChart or online at www.owensborohealth.org.

Patients may also pre-register for surgeries, admissions, outpatient procedures and tests prior to their visit by calling Owensboro Health’s Pre-registration Team at (270) 688-5556.

Financial Assistance

As a not-for-profit health system, Owensboro Health is committed to giving back to our communities. One way we do that is by providing financial assistance to individuals and families who cannot pay for medically necessary healthcare services they receive at our facilities.

Owensboro Health offers financial assistance to patients who do not have health insurance, or those who have out‐of‐pocket costs they cannot afford even with insurance coverage. Patients must submit an application for financial assistance and all required supporting documentation and must follow the requirements of the Financial Assistance Policy. The Financial Assistance Policy can be accessed through a link on our Billing page at www.OwensboroHealth.org/Billing .

Owensboro Health's financial assistance policy includes:

• Accommodating financial assistance guidelines that provide free care for individuals and families who earn less than 300% of the federal poverty level.

• Sliding scale fees to provide substantially discounted care for individuals and families who are between 300-400% of the federal poverty level.

Owensboro Health offers convenient interest-free payment plans up to 36 months to assist our patients. If you are uninsured and have income above the criteria for our financial assistance program, Owensboro Health offers a self-pay discount for your charges.

For additional information, please contact our Patient Financial Advocate Team at (270) 685-7501 or (866) 305-3737. You may also print a financial assistance application on our website at https://www.owensborohealth.org/patient-visitor/about-your-stay/billing/financial-assistance/.
