Patient Accounts Representative:
We want your hospital visit to be as pleasant as possible. You can assist us in accomplishing that goal by completing the pre-registration process. This allows us to prepare for the time of your arrival and make sure that all paperwork is ready for your signature. This process will greatly reduce the time required to complete the admission process.
We also want you to be aware that your hospitalization coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company. We will verify benefits and file a claim with your company; however you are ultimately responsible for the payment of your account. We will inform you of admission deposits either before or at the time of admission. Payment of estimated charges in excess of insurance benefits will be required either at the time of admission or discharge.
Your Patient Accounts Representative will be happy to answer any nonmedical questions concerning your hospital stay (i.e., questions about finances, credit and insurance, admission or discharge procedures) and make every effort to ensure that your stay at Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center is a comfortable one.
