Q. Who is responsible for paying my hospital bill?
A. Unless you specify otherwise, Norman Regional will bill your insurance company or Medicare/Medicaid directly. Later, Patient Financial Services (PFS) will follow up with the claim’s payment status. If a balance remains after your insurance has issued either a payment or a denial, you will be informed in writing of your responsibilities for payment. See a list of insurance providers accepted by Norman Regional. Contact PFS at 405-307-1318 if you have any questions or concerns.
Q. What if I don’t have insurance?
A. Patients who do not carry health insurance are considered self-pay accounts. We offer substantial discounts to our self-pay patients. Please contact Patient Financial Services at 405-307-1318 with any questions or for payment arrangements.
Q. What is a deductible?
A. A deductible is the fixed dollar amount you must pay toward healthcare costs over the course of a benefit period (usually a year) before your insurance provider begins reimbursement. For example, if your deductible is $1,000 and you spend that much in eligible out of pocket expenses, you have “reached your deductible,” and your insurance will start covering a larger percentage of the costs until the end of the benefit plan year. Depending on your insurance and reasons for your visit (i.e., inpatient, emergency room and surgery), the deductible amount may be required at the time of service.
Q. What is a copay?
A. A copay or copayment is a small flat fee you are responsible for paying for a particular medical service. For example, you may have a $30 co-payment for each doctor’s visit as part of your health insurance. You are responsible for paying the copayment at the time of service.
Q. What is coinsurance?
A. Coinsurance is the percentage of costs of a covered healthcare service you pay (20%, for example) after you have paid your deductible. For example, if your health insurance plan's allowed amount for an office visit is $100 and your coinsurance is 20%, your expenses would be as follows.
- If you have paid your deductible, you pay 20% of $100, or $20. The insurance company pays the rest.
- If you have not paid any of your deductible, you pay the full allowed amount, $100.
Coinsurance may be collected at the time of service.
Q. I received additional bills. What are these?
A. In addition to your bill from Norman Regional Health System, you may receive bills from independent practitioners who provided services to you at our facilities, such as a radiologist or an anesthesiologist. Please contact the physician’s office directly for questions or concerns.
Q. My insurance didn’t pay. Why is that?
A. Contact your insurance provider for this information.
Q. I need help. Is there someone I can call at Norman Regional Health System?
A. Our customer service representatives are here to help you 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Phone: 855-329-1834 Fax: 405-307-1304 Email: email@example.com
Q. What about my privacy?
A. Norman Regional will never release medical information in an email. Our site is secure and your credit card information is safe.
Please note: If your insurance company assigns you a deductible, co-pay or co-insurance and the dollar amount is not collected at the time of service, you will be billed at a later date.
