Billing & Insurance

Billing and Insurance

SLHO provides the same quality of care to all patients – whether or not they have health insurance. However, all patients share some financial responsibility for that care.

As a valued SLHO patient, we want you to know and understand your financial responsibility for your visit or hospital stay. It’s important to bring your insurance card with you to each visit. We can help you understand your benefits and any responsibility you may have for deductibles, co-insurance, or co-payment at the time of service.

SLHO accepts private health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and workers’ compensation. SLHO accepts cash, check, traveler’s check, money order, Discover, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express for payment.

If you have questions about your bill

A SLHO Patient Financial Service team member can assist in addressing any questions you may have about your bill. If you want to discuss your bill, you may contact Patient Financial Services at (404) 616-2991, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

 

Pay Your Bill Online

SLHO offers you convenient, easy and secure access to pay your bill online.

You will need your statement to pay for EMS services or pay as a guest. If you don’t have a statement, or need assistance, please contact Patient Financial Services at (404) 616-2991 about any SLHO facility bill or call (888) 214-6317 about your SLHO EMS bill.

      Financial Assistance Program

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Changes to Financial Assistance Process
To ensure the safety and well-being of our patients, their families, and staff during the coronavirus (COVID-19) visitation restrictions, Patient Financial Counselors are now calling patients who have scheduled Financial Counseling appointments. During the call, the counselor will determine if the patient meets the criteria for automated charity or if a manual assessment is required. Patient Financial Assistance is temporarily located in room 1H007 on the first floor of the hospital.

Cambios en el proceso de ayuda financiera debidos al coronavirus (COVID-19)
Para garantizar la seguridad y bienestar de nuestros pacientes, de sus familias y de nuestro personal mientras se mantengan las restricciones a las visitas presenciales que se han introducido por causa del coronavirus (COVID-19), los asesores financieros de pacientes están llamando a las personas que tienen citas programadas con Asesoría Financiera. Durante la llamada, el asesor determinará si el paciente cumple los criterios para recibir asistencia benéfica automáticamente, o si es necesaria una evaluación manual. Asistencia Financiera de Pacientes se encuentra, temporalmente, en la oficina I H007, en el primer piso del hospital.

We recognize not everyone has the resources they need to obtain medical care. For that reason, we are happy to offer Financial Assistance to those in need. If you have received SLHO services and find it would be a hardship to cover them financially, we encourage you to apply for financial assistance.

If you live in Fulton or DeKalb County, we offer a Financial Assistance Program. To determine if you are eligible, please call (404) 616-1000 to schedule an appointment with a Financial Counselor. Your information will be evaluated for financial assistance.

If you do not live in Fulton or DeKalb County, and you come to a SLHO facility for non-emergency or non-specialty outpatient medical care, you will be required to pay in full for your medical services before you will be seen by a healthcare provider. We encourage all uninsured patients to complete the financial assistance process so you can receive the appropriate discount for services. Those who do not go through financial assistance will be asked to pay the full cost of their care.
