How to ensure accurate billing
Here are a few things you can do before your visit to ensure accurate billing:
- When scheduling your appointment, pre-register. This will ensure that we have the correct information in our system.
- Make sure you have a good understanding of what is and is not covered by your insurance plan. Make sure Oak Valley Hospital District accepts your insurance plan.
- If necessary, make sure that your provider has obtained any pre-certification or referral from your insurance company
- Ask questions
- Get contact information for financial questions you may have after your visit
- Oak Valley Hospital District will first bill your insurance(s).
- After your insurance(s) have paid, you will be billed for any balances left on your account.
- However, if your insurance fails to pay the claims, you will be responsible for the costs incurred during your care.
- All balances are expected to be paid in full within 30 days of being billed, or the guarantor must make appropriate payment arrangements.
Surprise billing & Protecting Consumers
Starting January 1, 2022, consumers will have new billing protections when getting emergency care, non-emergency care from out-of-network providers at in-network facilities, and air ambulance services from out-of-network providers. Through new rules aimed to protect consumers, excessive out-of-pocket costs will be restricted, and emergency services must continue to be covered without any prior authorization, and regardless of whether or not a provider or facility is in-network.
