The goal of the Business Office is to serve all patients by coordinating insurance benefits in advance. The Business Office will bill insurance carriers on behalf of patients or assist those patients needing special payment arrangements. Additionally, GRMC has staff members who will explain your bill in detail and will investigate any billing issues that you have if needed.
In an effort to serve you successfully, it is of the utmost importance that you supply all information concerning insurance coverage prior to admission for elective procedures. This admission will allow us to verify coverage and improve the admission process. Each Business Office Representative will help with an estimate of your personal responsibility and explain payment requirements regarding deductibles and co-insurance at the time of registration.
