Patient Financial Services
In a time when you need assistance and compassion the most, North Valley Hospital Patient Financial Services is available to provide information and some comfort when it comes to the multiple payment options for our patients. Communicating your needs is the most important step you can take to avoid having a delinquent account. You may even qualify for options you weren’t aware were available.
At North Valley Hospital, we recognize that medical expenses are often large, unplanned and create further stress at a time when your primary concern is health rather than financial issues. It is our goal to help alleviate this issue. Patients, guardians and parents of patients have the right to a full explanation of charges for hospital services, but also have a responsibility to take the necessary steps for your balance to be paid.
It is important for patients to know that North Valley Hospital permits many different types of practitioners to order diagnostic services in the outpatient facilities. These practitioners are not employees of the hospital and they bill separately from the hospital. Please refer to North Valley Hospital’s Handbook for more information on the Outpatient Services Disclaimer.
North Valley Hospital has teamed with Patient Business Services to manage patient accounts and provide low-interest payment plans. If you have received a letter from Patient Business Services and would like to pay your bill on line, we offer an On-Line Payment option for VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and Debit cards. The secure web link is available 24-hours a day. Your payments will be applied to the oldest patient account within two to three business days. For your records, please print your payment confirmation.
Please refer to North Valley Hospital’s Handbook for important information on other payment options and discounts, insurance processing, refunds, and inquiries or errors about your bill. Click here for information on Financial Assistance Program.
