FAQ

What is a co-pay? When is it due?

A co-pay, or co-payment, is the amount of money you will need to pay in addition to what your health insurance covers. This is usually listed on your insurance card.

Your co-pay is due at the time you arrive at the hospital for treatment.

We accept the following forms of payment:

  • Cash
  • Check
  • Credit/Debit card ( Visa, Discover, MasterCard or American Express)

I was in accident at work, what do I do?

If your accident happened while you were at work, you must:
