Owensboro Health simplifies the billing process for you. Our approach includes:
Understanding Your Bill
Filing Your Claim
- After your visit to Owensboro Health, we submit a bill (also referred to as a claim) to your insurance company. Your claim lists the hospital services you received during your stay.
- You’ll receive a letter confirming the information on the claim. This letter is NOT a bill.
- Once your insurance pays its portion of the bill, you may receive a report called an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) that shows how the claim was paid.
- Owensboro Health will then send you a bill for the remaining balance.
Why Do I Have Multiple Bills
Your total bill may actually arrive as several smaller bills, broken down by individual services performed, such as:
- Emergency (if you were seen in the Emergency Department, picked up by an ambulance, etc.)
- Pathology (laboratory tests for biopsies, infections or disease identification and staging)
- Anesthesia (if you were put under anesthesia for surgery or another procedure)
- Radiology (any X-rays, MRIs or other scans performed)
These bills may come from different providers and may be sent separately from your Owensboro Health bill. For example, you may receive a radiology bill from the lab that processed your X-rays, or an ambulance bill from the company that transported you to the hospital. While this may seem confusing, it’s necessary. This allows each provider to ensure payment for the specific services they provided.
Other Charges You May See
- Provider charges – In most cases, Owensboro Health providers are employed independently and generate their own bills for services they perform.
- Consultation charges – Your provider may consult with a specialist or other providers to help them treat your condition. One example may be a Radiologist who interprets X-ray results or a Pathologist who interprets lab results. Their charges are billed separately even though you may not have been seen directly by the consulting provider.
- Hospital charges – You may receive a bill from Owensboro Health that covers many different styles of services. Examples include surgical and testing procedures, pharmacy, medical supplies, nursing services and therapy.
