One of the biggest decisions about who will be providing your healthcare is whether their services are covered under your current health insurance plan. To find out if Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System accepts your health insurance plan, or if you have questions about coverage, call our patient accounts department at (620) 665-2024 or contact your insurance company.
If you are having a scheduled procedure, we will make every effort to update your records and get your insurance information before you arrive. While your insurance may indeed cover some or most of your procedure, you will be asked to pay your co-pay, deductible or co-insurance at the time of your appointment. If your insurance does not cover services provided by Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System, your financial responsibility may be significantly higher and will be due at the time of service.
If you don’t have the exact amount due at the time, we will require a deposit. The amount of the deposit varies by the type of service you receive.
Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System accepts Medicare and Medicaid. At the time you register, you will be asked to present your insurance card as well as your personal ID. It is requested that Medicare patients pay their deductible at the time of admission. If it is not paid, supplemental insurance may be an option. Your eligibility to receive Medicaid will be verified.
Medicare requires that we check the diagnosis by the ordering physician to ensure that the specific tests or procedures are covered by Medicare. Medicare has the right to not pay for tests, services and procedures it believes are not required to address the diagnosis.
