Payment Requirements for Special Cases

Maternity Cases

Having a baby may affect a family’s ability to meet financial obligations unless plans are made in advance. Recognizing this fact, our Patient Account Representatives are available to help you plan payments and, if necessary, arrange for a loan through the Hospital’s Medical Finance Program.

Medicare

If you have not been in a hospital or nursing home within the last 60 days, you will owe the first day deductible established by the Medicare program. While a patient at SoutheastHEALTH, you will not owe any more than this unless:

  • You request a private room
  • You receive a test requiring physician interpretation or Emergency Department physician services
  • You are admitted to an outpatient category of care for the purpose of observation
  • A portion of your stay is "non-covered"
  • You have a stay that exhausts your full coverage days

NOTE: Inpatient Medicare coverage exists only for “acute care,” as defined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. If at any time during the course of your hospitalization, the hospital or your physician feels you no longer require acute care, (as it is defined), you may be notified that Medicare benefits will not be payable after two days from the date of notification. Your appeal rights are carefully explained in the notification and our Case Management Representatives are available to assist in this appeal process.

If you have other insurance policies to supplement Medicare, we ask that you either pay the deductible at discharge or make an assignment of these benefits to the hospital. Any over payment due you will be promptly refunded.
