Understanding Your Statement
As a patient of ETSU, College of Nursing Practice Sites, we submit a claim to your health insurance provider, including Medicare, and any secondary insurance before we bill you. If you owe a balance that was not covered by your insurance, or if you are a self-pay patient, you will receive a statement by mail.
ETSU, College of Nursing Practice Sites provide patients a consolidated statement (per guarantor). If you have a question regarding your statement, please call the billing office.
Payment is due within 30 days of billing. We accept personal checks and major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover).
Patients can pay a statement balance using one of the following options:
- Mail — complete and return payment coupon attached to statement
- Phone — Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
If you have health insurance, our billing office will first bill your insurance carrier. If your insurance plan does not cover a service or procedure, or does not cover the entire cost, you will be responsible for the non-covered fees.
If you have insurance coverage and wish to update your insurance information for billing, please contact the billing office immediately. Most insurance companies have timely filing requirements.
If you are covered by Medicare, we will submit your claims to Medicare on your behalf. After Medicare makes its payment, we will bill your supplemental or secondary insurance carrier for the remaining balance (as determined by Medicare). If you do not have supplemental or secondary insurance, you will be responsible for the remaining balance. Please refer to your EOMB (Explanation of Medicare Benefits) and/or your EOB (Explanation of Benefits) from your supplemental or secondary insurance for additional information.
