Thank you for choosing Vernon Memorial Healthcare as your health care provider. We understand that health care bills and health insurance claims can be confusing.
Vernon Memorial Healthcare charges are the same for all patients, regardless of whether you are insured. VMH does contract with insurance carriers, and those contracts may discount the amount the carrier will actually pay VMH for the services rendered to you. Patients are responsible for all remaining account balances not paid by their insurance plans. The amount you may be responsible for will not include any unpaid negotiated discount amount between VMH and your plan.
If you are insured by a government program such as Medicare or Medicaid, your self pay responsibility is determined by the government program.
If you are insured by a commercial carrier, your self pay responsibility will be determined by your carrier and based on the benefits of your plan. Please refer to the "Explanation of Benefits" summary you receive from your health plan to determine how benefits are paid and how your carrier determines self-pay responsibility. If you have questions about coverage or how your plan calculated your benefits you should check your health plan book or call the customer service phone number on your insurance card.
We provide various levels of financial assistance to those who are unable to pay for health care services. Financial assistance is available to individuals who do not have the ability to pay their full obligation as determined by the qualification criteria in our "Community Care" program. The amount of the aid will take into account each individual’s ability to contribute to the cost of his or her care. Please see additional information under "Community Care".
