Share Medical Center processes most hospital patient billing, prior to service delivery, to verify the following information:
- insurance coverage
- insurance responsibility
- deductibles (if any)
- co-pays (if any)
- other patient responsibilities
This information is up-to-date and takes into consideration year-to-date services applied to insurance, deductibles, etc.
Patients may expect to pay for all, or a reasonable portion of their scheduled services, or co-pay, up front, at the time services are rendered.
Share Medical Center allows many forms of payment to suit the needs of most patients.
- Credit/Debit Card
- ACH Transfer
- NEW! Care Credit: Patients may also apply for Care Credit. This option allows the patient to transfer the balance of their bill to an independent financing company, Care Credit. Care Credit provides payment to SMC on behalf of the patient, allowing SMC to provide services to the patient. The patient makes payment arrangements with Care Credit.
If unable to pay at the time services are rendered, patients must make payment arrangements and sign a guarantor note. Patients’ accounts shall remain in good standing so long as patients continue to make payments according to the agreed upon arrangements.
Of course, patients may reschedule their services in order to secure payment at the time services are provided.
Patients may apply for financial assistance with their medical bills according to government established poverty guidelines. Please ask the registration clerk for information.
Private-Pay Customers (no insurance)
Patients without insurance, or those choosing not to file a claim with insurance may receive a 20% discount on services by paying in full at the time services are rendered, or upon receiving a bill for such services.
Share Medical Center will file all insurance forms for its patients with health coverage or other insurance coverage. Patients with insurance will be expected to pay their co pays or deductibles at the time services are rendered, or upon receiving an adjusted bill after insurance benefits have been applied.
Pre-Certification: Most group insurance and some individual insurance policies require pre-certification for hospital admissions as well as some outpatient services. If your policy requires pre-certification, it is your responsibility to notify your doctor. Our staff will gladly assist you to insure your pre-certification requirements have been met.
SMC is a network provider for most major insurers.
