Patients should carry insurance cards at all times. Not every insurance plan pays for all charges, diagnoses, or conditions, and there may be deductibles or co-pays. Also for some plans, it is the responsibility of the patient or policy holder to inform their insurer in a timely manner regarding most hospitalizations, particularly elective hospital admissions. If it is determined a patient has no insurance coverage, the hospital staff will discuss with you the various alternatives available to resolve the outstanding bill. This could include reduced charges and payment over an extended period of time.
