What to Expect?

Upon arriving at the Emergency Department at Springhill Medical Center you will begin a multistep process designed to deliver professional, efficient, and compassionate urgent and emergent medical care.

You will begin by giving your name and medical complaint at the registration desk.
Next you will be taken to the triage room (one of the assessment rooms adjacent to the registration desk) where a registered nurse will begin the medical interview, take vital signs, and perform a triage exam.

Depending on the severity of complaint and available exam rooms, you will either be placed in the waiting room or in a patient exam room within the Emergency Department. Upon arrival to the exam room, you may be asked to change into a hospital gown in order to gain a more thorough physical exam. Patients are placed in treatment rooms according to severity of their medical condition, not necessarily by time of arrival.

After being placed in the exam room you will be interviewed and examined by an Emergency Medicine Physician who may order x-rays, blood tests, and/or medications. Heart and oxygen monitors may be placed on you in order to closely monitor your condition. The doctor will discuss with you the plan of either admission to the hospital or discharge to home.

About My Bill

Will the hospital bill include the physician’s services?
No, the emergency room physician’s are not employed by the hospital. Therefore you will receive separate bill.

Can I find out how much the emergency room physician will cost and if my medical insurance will cover the visit before seeing the doctor?
No. Emergency physician charges are not based on time. It takes time to evaluate your record for your visit and determine the appropriate charges.

Why did my billing statement have an adjustment amount?
If your statement has an adjustment it means that the physician is contracted with your insurance and has agreed to accept a discounted rate. Contracted insurances determine the amount due from the patient.

I was in the hospital several weeks ago, why haven't I received a bill?
Depending on how quickly the insurance company processes the bill, it may take 2 to 8 weeks for you to receive a bill.

Why am I receiving a bill? I was injured and work or in an auto accident.
We have either received no or insufficient information. Please contact us and provide the correct information.

The physician only saw me for a few minutes, why am I being charged so much?
The physician charges are based on procedures, treatment and decision-making, not on actual time.

About My Insurance

Who will bill my insurance?
(SEP) will bill the insurance company on your behalf as a courtesy with the information provided by the hospital or yourself. Your cooperation in giving complete and accurate information to the admitting personnel at each of your visits will help to get your insurance claim paid quickly.

Why am I being asked for my insurance information again? I already gave it to the hospital.
The information given to the hospital may have been incomplete or received after the initial information was sent by the hospital.

I received a statement but my insurance has not paid?
While each insurance company is different, we generally expect full payment from your insurance company within 60 days of billing. If your insurance company does not pay the bill within 60 days, we may send you a notification of their non-payment and request that you contact them to send the payment.

I have two insurances; will you bill both of them?
Yes. After your primary insurance pays your claim, we will bill your secondary.

How may I make a payment?
SEP accepts VISA, MasterCard, AMEX, money orders and personal checks. Credit and debit card payments are accepted over the phone at no charge or payments can be mailed to:

What if I am unable to make the full payment? Can I set up a payment plan?
Yes. If you would like to set up a payment plan, you can contact the customer service number listed on your billing statement or send an email to als@attglobal.net.

I already made payment to the hospital, why am I getting another bill?
Any payments made to or at the facility are applied only to the facility billing. The hospital cannot and does not accept payments for the physician's group.
