Charity Discount Policy
North Tampa Behavioral Health has a Charity Discount Policy that provides free or discounted hospital care for patients who have received non-elective care. Discounts are granted to patients based on capacity to pay estimated liability. In order to qualify for this free/discounted care, you must complete a Financial Assistance Application and provide some documents to support your income.
Payment at Time of Service
Similar to your visits to your physician’s office, we will ask you for your copayment, coinsurance and/or deductible payment at time of your services based on your specific insurance benefits. We accept major credit cards, checks, money orders and cash.
Your Hospital Bill
This is how our billing process usually works. A claim will be sent to your insurance company shortly after your services are complete.
After your insurance company receives the claim, the insurance company may contact you for additional information. Please respond to your insurance company’s questions as quickly as possible so their payment to us is not delayed.
It usually takes 30 – 45 days for your insurance company to pay your claim. After your insurance company pays us, we will provide you with information about any amount you may still owe.
Please keep in mind that your policy is a binder between you and your insurance company. If you did not follow your insurance plan’s terms, they may not pay for all or part of your care.
Similar to your visits to your physician’s office, we expect payment at time of service. If you are ineligible for Charity and cannot pay your entire estimated bill, we will work with you to set up monthly payment arrangements. If, after your services are received, any additional payment is due, we will send you information about any amount you may still owe. We accept major credit cards, checks, money orders and cash.
