St. Francis Medical Center accepts most major health insurance plans including the following listed below.
Before scheduling your hospital visit, check with your health insurance provider to see if you are covered and learn the specifics of your coverage. Insurance plans are agreements made between you and your insurer, and St. Francis Medical Center cannot ensure that an insurance provider will pay for your care. It is your responsibility to understand what types of coverage your health insurance provides and to be sure that you meet all requirements stipulated by your specific plan.
Many PPO, HMO, employer benefit programs, and insurance plans require pre-certification for payment of full benefits. If your plan requires pre-certification, please notify your physician. Also, if your plan requires a referral form, please bring it at the time of admission.
Patients without insurance coverage will be expected to make a deposit on admission. Financial Counselors will assist you in making arrangements.
