Insurance companies typically take 45 days to reimburse the hospital. We may ask you to assist us in the collection of your account, especially if there is any delay in receiving payment from your insurance company. We may also require you to make payments until a payment is received.
In addition, insurance plans frequently have limitations and may not pay your account in full. You are responsible for any unpaid balance.
Contact our patient representative if you have any questions, (831) 761-5660.
No one will be denied necessary medical care due to lack of insurance or inability to pay. However, if you are uninsured you may be asked to pay a deposit when you're admitted or when you register for an outpatient procedure.
You may be eligible for financial assistance programs, which is based on the annual gross income and number of persons in your family. For more information, please call our financial services representatives at (831) 761-5660.
