Financial Arrangements

At the time of your admission to the hospital, satisfactory financial arrangements need to be made for paying your hospital account. Once your hospital insurance coverage is verified, a deposit may be necessary to cover your deductible and /or co-pay insurance portion.

We accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa cards for payment of your account.

Have Questions about Billing, Discounts and Payment Plans?

We may be able to help if you worry about paying the bill for your care in full. It is important that you speak with us if paying your bill or balances after insurance will be difficult. Make an appointment with a GRMC Financial Counselor.

GRMC Financial Counseling provides assistance:

• Setting up a payment schedule for your medical bills

Discounts for self-pay patients are available with additional discounts for prompt payments

Understanding your hospital bill

• With payments by cash, personal check, and credit card. Online payment is available.

Financial counseling is available at both the GRMC Patient Financial Services and at the Registration area inside the hospital.

Your Hospital Bill

Your daily hospital room charge includes: nursing care, bedside meals, admitting and billing services, housekeeping, medical record keeping, security and some medication. Additional charges will be added for services ordered by your doctor, x-rays, laboratory test, medications, oxygen, operating room, delivery room and physical therapy.

You will receive a separate bill for physician services: radiology, anesthesiology, cardiology, pathology, emergency room physicians and other physician consultation fees. You will be billed directly by the physicians providing these services.

As a courtesy, we bill most insurance companies for you. If you are covered by Medicare or Medicaid, we submit a bill for you. We accept the Medicaid and Medicare-approved amount as our part of the payment, but you are responsible for any deductible or co-payment.
