Insurance Pre-Certification/Prior Authorization

Many insurance plans have pre-certification or prior authorization requirements for certain services.  Information about these requirements is usually listed on the back of your insurance card.  To avoid denial of your claim or reduction of payment please refer to your card or your benefit handbook, or contact the customer service department of your insurance company to inquire about your responsibility to complete these requirements.  Emergency services generally allow at least 24 hours grace period for notification.

If your insurance card indicates pre-certification/prior authorization is required, it is your responsibility to contact your insurance company before you are admitted to Beatrice Community Hospital.  Failure to obtain the authorization may result in reduced insurance benefits.

Billing/Insurance Companies

The Beatrice Community Hospital Patient Financial Services Department will file a claim with the insurance company as soon as all billing information is completed.  After your insurance processes the claim you will be billed for any remaining balance due.  Payment will be due by due date noted on your statement. 

Beatrice Community Hospital currently participates with the following insurance companies:

  • Medicare
  • Nebraska Medicaid
  • Kansas Medicaid
  • Iowa Medicaid
  • Missouri Medicaid
  • South Dakota Medicaid
  • Colorado Medicaid
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Midlands Choice
  • United Healthcare
  • Coventry
  • Tricare

We may be considered out-of-network with other companies which may cause your health benefits to be reduced.

Billing statements from Beatrice Community Hospital may include services provided by the hospital, ancillary services performed at its associated health clinics, and some professional services (anesthesia, emergency department physicians, hospitalists, general surgeon, orthopedic surgeon, pediatricians, OB/GYNs).  Other professional services may be billed separately (radiologist, pathology).

If you do not have insurance, a bill will be sent out shortly after discharge requesting payment in full within 30 days.

Payment Options

We will gladly work with you to make the resolution of your account as easy as possible.

We accept payment by cash, check, or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express).  We can also set up automatic withdrawals from your checking account or credit card.

Any payment arrangements, other than payment in full, must be approved in order to keep your account from being considered past due.

We offer a 10% prompt pay discount if the account balance is paid within 15 days of the receipt of the statement.

Financial Assistance

If you think your current income is not sufficient to pay the balance of your account, you may qualify for Financial Assistance.  For more information regarding our Financial Assistance Program you may ask during the admission process or by contacting the Patient Financial Services Department.  The Financial Assistance Application is also available on the Beatrice Community Hospital Web site.
