Will the hospital bill my primary and secondary insurance?
Yes, as a courtesy to you, Mahaska Health Partnership (MHP) will submit bills to all of your insurance companies. You will need to provide us with complete information on all insurances. Some insurance companies require additional information from the patient before they will process a claim. In this instance, it may be necessary for you to contact your insurance company and provide them with the additional information.
Will I receive an itemized statement?
Itemized statements are sent only if you request one. To request an itemized statement, please call 641.672.3315, between 7:00 am - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Do you offer payment arrangements?
Yes, payment arrangements may be made by contacting us at 641.672.3315, between 7:00 am - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Why did I receive separate bills for the hospital and the doctor(s)?
Physicians, pathologists, radiologists and other specialists submit separate bills. If you have questions about these bills, please call the number printed on your statement.
I stayed overnight in the hospital. Why is this billed as an outpatient stay?
The physician who ordered your service determined that your condition did not meet the criteria for an inpatient admission. The physician's written order determines if we bill as an inpatient or an outpatient.
