It is the policy of Good Samaritan Hospital (GSH) to collect all out-of-pocket expenses due prior to or at the time of service. If you are not contacted prior to your date of service, you may be visited by a financial counselor while receiving services to review your benefit package. The financial counselor will inform you of any out-of-pocket expenses for which you may be responsible and collect payment prior to discharge. If you are unable to pay at the time of service, the financial counselor will be able to discuss other payment options with you.
Any amount not paid by your health insurance plan within a reasonable amount of time will also be billed to you. If you have questions about your insurance benefits, contact your insurance company. If you have questions about your billing statement, you may contact us at (937) 276-8308, or toll-free at 800-772-1130, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
