Explanation of Bills
If you have provided us with your insurance information, we will submit a claim on your behalf. SVMC is required to submit a separate bill to your insurance for each inpatient or outpatient visit; therefore, you’ll receive a separate bill and account number for each visit and date of service.
We ask that you bring your insurance information with you when you register, so we can obtain a photo copy of your insurance card. We also ask that you inform us of any changes to your demographic information that may have occurred since your last visit.
Radiologist, pathologists, and consulting physicians may bill you and/or your insurance company separately for their services. These consulting physicians may not be hospital employees; therefore, they may not be participating members of your specific insurance plan. If you have any questions regarding your insurance coverage or bills from these providers, please contact them directly.
If you do not have insurance, you’ll receive a statement shortly after services are provided. Please remit payment in full at that time. If you are unable to pay the balance in full, please contact one of our financial counselors at 307-885-5995.
Frequently Ask Questions
In addition to anything your physician asked you to bring, please bring your insurance card, identification card, current mailing address, employer address, and phone number. It is also helpful to have the address and phone number for the person you would want contacted in case of an emergency.
Depending on the insurance that you have and the service you receive, you may be asked to pay a co-payment, deductible, or co-insurance at the time of your visit. If you do not have insurance you may be asked to make payment in full.

However, if you do not have insurance, you will receive a statement within 7-10 business days following your visit.
You will receive two bills- one for your physician and one for your hospital charges. For other services such as radiology or pathology, you will receive a separate statement from those providers. Please contact those providers directly if you have questions about their bills.

Yes. If you have provided information for both insurance carriers, we will first submit a claim to your primary insurance carrier and once they have paid, we will then submit a claim to your secondary insurance.
If there is a patient responsibility after your insurance has processed, you will be notified via statement. Otherwise, no statements will be sent to you reflecting insurance payment.
Medicare classifies SVMC as a provider based which means that our billing process must adhere to specific rules and requirements. One of these requirements is to split the physician or professional services rendered by your provider apart from all other charges related to your visit.
For example: A visit to a physician will incur two separate charges: The first charge is for the physician’s professional services, while the second charge is the facility fee. You do not receive duplicate bills for the same service and will only receive one statement for any outstanding balance that is your responsibility.
