Heartland Health will honor assignments of insurance benefits for 45 days from the date of billing to the insurance company. If, at the end of 45 days, the insurance company has not settled the account, Heartland Health will look to the patient for the final settlement of the account.
Any patient having inadequate insurance coverage, or no insurance coverage, will be requested to make appropriate deposits at the time of admission.
Payment may be made with cash, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, debit cards, personal check or money orders. Payments made after the date on the statement will appear on the next months statement.
If a patient is unable to pay the full amount, Heartland has payment options that may help. Patients may call Patient Financial Services at (816) 271-7524. We want to work with each patient to meet his or her financial responsibilities. If this isn't succesful, past due amounts will be forwarded to an agency to continue collection efforts.
