Monroe County Medical Center accepts assignment for all covered Medicare services and will bill the Medicare program on the patient's behalf. If the patient has supplemental insurance, the hospital will bill the carrier as well. All charges for non-covered services, as well as any deductible or coinsurance amounts, will be the patient/guarantor's responsibility. The Medicare Clerks may be reached at 270-487-9231, ext. 1162 or ext. 1142.
Monroe County Medical Center accepts all insurance for covered plan services and, as a courtesy, will bill the insurance carrier for the patient. However, the patient/guarantor will ultimately be responsible for payment including all applicable deductible or coinsurance amounts.
