GCH Billing Information

Geary Community Hospital’s Patient Financial Services Department is available to advise you and your family on any questions or concerns you may have about the charge for services you receive at Geary Community Hospital or Clinics.

Geary Community Hospital and Clinics submit claims to your insurance carrier and will automatically apply insurance payments toward your balance. Once your insurance has paid and is applied to your balance, you will receive a patient billing statement from GCH showing the portion you are responsible for. This portion should be the same amount as reported on the Explanation of Benefits notice from your insurance company.

If no payment is received after the first billing cycle, GCH will send your bill a second time. If the account is not paid within those two billing cycles, a representative from GCH will contact you by phone or mail to set up a payment plan. It is important that you respond to this call or letter to discuss your payment options. Failure to respond could result in your account being sent to a collection agency.

If you have questions about your GCH hospital bill or GCH clinic bill, please call our Patient Financial Services department at 785-210-3405.

Understanding Your Payment Options

 

Prompt Pay Advantage

Patients who submit their entire payment within 25 days from receiving their first patient billing statement may apply a 20% prompt pay reduction towards the amount due. Your first bill will show your full amount due and the amount due with the prompt pay discount. To receive the discount, the entire prompt pay amount must be paid. There will be no refund or credits applied if the discount is not taken at the time of payment.

What If I Don’t Have Health Insurance?

If you do not have insurance, you may be eligible for some type of coverage. Please call our Patient Financial Counselor at 785-210-3349. The GCH Patient Financial Counselor specializes in screening patients who may qualify for coverage including: Medicaid, presumptive eligibility, disability, and COBRA. Our staff can help you complete and submit the appropriate forms for insurance coverage.

What if I Can’t Afford To Pay My Bill?

An illness requiring hospitalization often presents a financial burden on you or your family for which you are not prepared. Geary Community Hospital wants to help ease this burden so financial problems will not interfere with your recovery.

If no payment is received after the first billing cycle, GCH will send your bill a second time. If the account is not paid within those two billing cycles, a representative from GCH will contact you by phone or mail to set up a payment plan. It is important that you respond to this call or letter to discuss your payment options. Failure to respond could result in your account being sent to a collection agency.

• PAYMENT PLANS

If you cannot pay your entire bill right away, GCH offers payment plan options with no contract to sign and no annual fee. To qualify for a payment plan, you may be required to answer questions about your family’s income and expenses to make sure the payment plan offered works within your budget. All payment plans are subject to review every six months.

Call 785-210-3349 to learn more about your payment plan options.

Once you have established a payment plan, you should make regular payments toward your account. Automatic payment options via credit card or checking/savings account are available. Regular payment plan vouchers (payment reminders) are also available.
