Billing & Insurance
Mission Regional Medical Center accepts most insurance plans, including
traditional Medicare and Medicaid and most replacement plans, private
insurance and Workers’ Compensation. The hospital will verify your
insurance eligibility and benefits prior to your arrival. If your benefits
are less than 100% coverage, our Financial Counselor will contact you
before your surgical procedure or diagnostic test regarding a deposit
equal to your estimated patient liability. Any outstanding balances for
previous services will also be included. Your registrar will ask you for
payment at time of service. Your payment may be made by cash, check or
credit card. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted.
If payment cannot be made in accordance to these guidelines, contact the
Financial Counselor at (956) 323-1803.
Emergency treatment is never withheld based upon a patient’s ability
to pay. Once your emergency situation has been assessed with a Medical
Screening examination by our Emergency Room physician, you may be admitted
to the hospital. You will be visited by the Financial Counselor to review
your benefits and establish financial arrangements.
The hospital accepts your insurance and files a claim on your behalf. You,
as the patient who receives services, are responsible for payment of your
hospital bill. Any balance remaining after insurance has paid or denied
your claim is due in full. Our Central Business Office can assist you
with payment of your account after discharge at 956-291-1700.
