The Billing Process
Prior to your surgery, you will be contacted by a member of our pre-admission staff. In addition to information about your general health, they will collect insurance data to pre-approve your surgery. When you arrive for surgery, you may be asked for a co-payment or deductible. After you leave the hospital, a bill for your services will be sent to the insurance company. After we receive payment (30-60 days) you will receive a letter asking for the remaining portion for which you are responsible.
If you are not financially capable of covering the entire balance due, please contact a Financial Advisor at (402) 609-2423 immediately.
Please note that in addition to the hospital, you may receive a separate bill for anesthesia, radiology, internal/family medicine, pathology services and/or your physician. These bills reflect the professional services provided during your stay. If you have questions concerning this bill please contact the provider directly.
OrthoNebraska participates in most major insurance plans and works directly with your provider to submit a claim on your behalf.
Please contact your insurance provider to ensure that we are in your providers in-services network.
We recognize that not all patients have insurance or health care benefits. If you do not have insurance, you will be asked to pay a portion of the anticipated balance prior to your surgery. Contact our Financial Counselor at (402) 609-2423 or email Financing@OrthoNebraska.com for more information.
