My Bill – Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Will I receive a separate bill for hospital and physician services that I receive at Asante?

A. You will receive separate statements for your Asante hospital and Asante Physician Partners services. You might also receive additional separate billings from other physicians and services related to your medical service that are not part of Asante. Some examples of these may include anesthesia services, radiology reading fees, assistant surgeons, etc…

Q. How will I know how much I will owe?

A. Your insurance will send you an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) that will detail the provider of service, services rendered, and the amount your insurance plans to pay. The EOB will also note items that are non-covered or denied, and any remaining balance that you owe. Take time to review your insurance EOB carefully, comparing it to your Asante billing statement. Call your insurance or Asante right away if you have questions or concerns.

Q. Why do you ask for my co-pay, deductible or co-insurance at the time of service?

A. We ask for payment at the time of service so you won’t be inconvenienced with a billing sent to your home after your visit. It also helps to reduce costs and saves you the trouble of mailing a payment back to Asante.

Q. What should I do if my insurance denies my claim?

A. You will receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your insurance company to notify you of any denied or non-covered services. After reviewing your EOB if you still have question you should contact your insurance company using the customer service phone number listed on your insurance card. If after talking with your insurance you still have questions please call Asante.
