Billing and Insurance

Hospital Billing

As a courtesy to our patients, we will bill the insurance carrier on your behalf.  However, payment is the ultimate responsibility of the patient.  It is important to present your insurance card with accurate information at the time of admission.  Please ensure the Admitting Department has collected all necessary information before you leave the hospital.

Prior to or during your hospital stay, we will verify your insurance coverage.  Based upon this verification, we may ask you for a deposit at the time of service. To meet this pre-payment, you may use MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, personal checks or cash.

Contact the Business Office

For questions regarding your bill while in the hospital, you may contact a Patient Account Representative at 2563 or an Admitting Specialist at 2560. After discharge, you may contact the Business Office at (573) 727-2721 or the phone number listed on your statement.

Billing Statements

The billing statement you receive from Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center is for hospital services only. You may also receive statements for professional services provided to you, such as your personal physician, surgeon, radiologist and anesthesia services.
