At Northern Louisiana Medical Center, our goal is to provide patients with high quality care and the best possible hospital experience, from registration through discharge. We know that understanding billing, insurance and medical records may seem overwhelming at times. To make this process more transparent and help patients understand their personal out-of-pocket responsibility, the hospital will make available price quotes in advance of services being provided and in compliance with federal law.*
Our financial counselors welcome questions and are available to provide assistance. To obtain a price quote, please contact the Patient Financial Services department at the hospital, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.. so that estimates are as accurate as possible, please provide:
The hospital estimate will provide the patient/consumer with the following:
Estimates will not include any services related to complications that may occur during the procedure/service. Also, charges for physician fees such as a surgeon, pathologist, anesthesiologist or radiologist will not be included. These charges will be billed separately by the specific provider. Due to these factors, estimates are not exact and cannot be interpreted as a bill or exact cost for services. Instead, this service is offered to help simplify the financial aspect of hospital visits so patients are able to focus on their healthcare.
