Thank you for choosing Dallas County Hospital for your health care needs. There are several important things that you should know about your financial responsibilities.
- At the time of registration, you will be asked to provide either a current insurance card or information about your current insurance carrier, as well as any specific forms or original documentation (claim forms, authorizations, referrals, etc.) required by your carrier.
- Dallas County Hospital will file insurance claims, but you are ultimately responsible for paying for the services provided. Regardless of your ability to pay, Dallas County Hospital will perform services that are indicated to be medically necessary.
- Dallas County Hospital requests the patient portion of charges be paid at time of registration. The amount you pay varies depending on your insurance coverage. Most policies require patients to pay a deductible and a percentage of the remaining cost of services (co-payments). We accept personal checks, cash, Master Card, Visa and Discover.
- Additionally, Dallas County Hospital offers Financial Assistance to the uninsured and underinsured. Any one of our friendly Registration staff can discuss your options based on individual needs.
Regardless, patients will receive necessary medical care and the care will never be based on the patient’s ability to pay.
