The Patient Financial Services Department mission is to help patients with their medical expenses in a most timely, efficient, caring and confidential manner. 

We process and submit all hospital-based charges to your insurance company based on the information provided at registration.

If you need to update or change your insurance information, please contact us within 48 hours of coming to the hospital to update your account information.

Co-pays and Deductibles

Hospital Billing Policies

The Bellevue Hospital charges the same for all patients, but a patient’s responsibility may vary depending on payment received from an individual’s health plan.

The Bellevue Hospital will bill most insurance carriers. Please be sure to have all your correct and complete insurance information upon registering. Co-payments should be paid at the time of services.   

If you were involved in an auto accident please complete the accident information questionnaire during registration.  We also ask you to provide us with the auto insurance information and your medical insurance to assist you with your claim processing.  If we do not receive the information the account will become a self pay bill.

 

Balances remaining after insurance payments and adjustments will be billed to you. You may also be billed if your insurance company denies payment or fails to respond.  Self Pay accounts will be billed at the time the account is finalized. 

Payment in full is expected and appreciated. If you cannot pay your entire balance please contact us at the number on your statement for payment arrangements. 

You will receive a separate billing statement for the following services:

 ER physicians, radiologists, pathologists and anesthesiologists.
