Financial & Collection Policy Summary

To provide you with cost effective healthcare, Burnett Medical Center has an obligation to collect for services rendered in a timely, efficient manner.

PATIENTS WITH MEDICAL INSURANCE

For patients with Medical Insurance, Burnett Medical Center will file a claim with your insurance carrier if you provide a copy of your insurance card (Front & Back).

After insurance has processed your claim, and if you have any self-pay balance remaining, Burnett Medical Center will send you a monthly statement. Payment is due upon receipt.

If you are not familiar with your insurance coverage or insurance-specific certification or authorization requirements, we recommend that you discuss your policy with your insurance company or employer before charges are incurred.

PATIENTS WITH LIABILITY INSURANCE

(WORK COMP/AUTO/HOMEOWNERS)
For patients with Liability Insurance, Burnett Medical Center will file a claim with your liability insurance carrier if you provide a completed Liability Form. This form is available from our registration staff. Accounts cannot be held pending settlement of a lawsuit.

PATIENTS WITHOUT INSURANCE OR WITHOUT PROOF OF INSURANCE

If you do not have insurance or are without proof of insurance, please make payment or deposit with cash, check or credit card (MasterCard, Discover, or Visa) at the time of service.

Those who are uninsured and do not qualify for Community Care will be given a 13% uninsured discount. If remaining balance is paid within 30 days of first statement, an additional 10% discount will be given.

If you are unable to pay this balance in full, our Financial Counselor will be happy to assist you in person during the weekday or by calling 715-463-7247.

If you qualify, our Community Care program may offer you free or discounted care. (Please click here for more information on Burnett Medical Center's financial assistance program and policies.)
