Billing Process

The billing process begins when you register for services at the hospital or, have an appointment with your physician or provider at our CLH clinic. You will be asked to provide any health insurance information or other insurance information such as auto or workman’s comp if applicable, at the time of service.

As a courtesy, we will bill your insurance company directly. Depending on the insurance you have, you may be asked to pay your portion such as a specific co-payment, co-insurance or deductible amount as your share of the cost.

Your insurance coverage is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please be sure to refer to your insurance policy guidelines and benefit information with questions about your coverage.

Once your insurance has processed the claim, you will receive a statement for any patient balance due. If you have questions, please contact Patient Financial Services at 850-674-5411. If you are unable to pay the bill in full, a payment plan may be established. If you are unable to pay your bill, you may qualify for financial assistance. Please refer to the section titled Financial Assistance for more information.

Types of Insurance Accepted by CLH

Calhoun Liberty Hospital accepts most insurance types (see below for a list of participating providers). If CLH is a participating provider, your insurance will receive a discount based on a contract with CLH. We bill the insurance provider on your behalf. Any amount indicated as patient responsibility after your insurance has paid will be billed to you. If CLH is not a participating provider by contract with the insurance company, you will be responsible for any amount not paid by your plan. In addition, you may receive services at CLH by independent providers, such as radiologist, pathologist or emergency room physicians. Please note that hospitals may not be included in all health plan offerings. Please check with your insurance company for more information.

Independent physicians may bill you separately. You should contact your insurance plan to determine if these providers are in network or, participating with your plan.  A list of provider groups that offer services independent of CLH may be found below (list of independent providers).

Calhoun Liberty Hospital Association, Inc. participates with government-sponsored plans such as Medicare, Medicaid, Tri-Care and Veterans Administration. Regardless of the type of coverage, it is your responsibility to provide an insurance card at the time of registration so a claim can be submitted to your plan.

It is your responsibility to ensure we have accurate, current insurance information on file. If you provide insurance information after the time limit for filing has passed, the bill may be your responsibility.
