We continually strive to contain costs, while maintaining our commitment to excellence in medical care, by ensuring that every appropriate effort is made to collect money owed to Lake Region Healthcare for services provided.
Patients are responsible for the charges for services received. However, to assist patients in meeting their financial obligations, Lake Region Healthcare will bill their health insurance carrier(s) for them, as long as a valid ID card and/or information regarding insurance coverage is presented at the time of registration.
Lake Region Healthcare accepts assignments of benefits and maintains an active follow-up program with all insurance carriers. Insurance is billed as a courtesy to the patient and the patient remains responsible for contacting their insurance carrier to ensure prompt payment of their accounts. Accounts with delinquent balances or without adequate payment arrangements may be forwarded to a collection agency or attorney.
At the patient's request, a detailed bill may be provided. Lake Region Healthcare will send monthly statements to the patients or responsible party on open accounts.
