Fees, Billing and Payment Procedures
Considerable care has been taken in setting our fees. Our charges reflect the complexity of care, skill and expertise required for your care. Charges for services rendered may vary from visit to visit depending on the level of care rendered by your provider. We respect your right to know the cost of services prior to receiving them. A Patient Financial Advocate in our Patient Estimates Department can assist in providing estimates for services performed at FHN. In addition to providing estimated charges, our Patient Financial Advocates verify insurance benefits and eligibility to calculate your estimated out of pocket responsibility. To obtain an estimate or speak with a Patient Financial Advocate, please call 1-866-417-0542.
To ensure accuracy and timely claim filing to your insurance company, please present your insurance card at every visit. As a courtesy, FHN will file a claim to your insurance company on your behalf. Please be prepared to pay your co-payment, deductible or any charges not covered by your insurance company at the time of service. As a healthcare consumer, it is your responsibility to know and understand your insurance benefits. For questions regarding your benefits or to locate an in-network provider, please contact your insurance company.
FHN will discount charges 20 percent for patients without health insurance. This discount will be applied automatically to billing statements. In addition, a 15 percent prompt pay discount is offered on eligible balances to patients who make a payment in full within 30 days of their first billing statement. Some exclusions apply.
