Admissions and billing


Financial Counseling and Payment Options
Teton Valley Hospital honors most major insurance carriers including Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Medicare and regional Medicaid.

 

Private pay patients should be prepared to pay in full at the time of service, or make payment arrangements with our Financial Counselor prior to admission.

 

Insurance coverage is a contract between the patient and their carrier. Patients are responsible for all hospital charges incurred. Insurance billing is a courtesy provided by our Billing Office.

 

Patients in need of financial medical assistance are encouraged to meet with our financial counselor in order to apply to one of many available federal, state and county programs before receiving care. If emergency care is required, Medical Assistance programs may help cover costs. Let us help you navigate your options.

 

For more information about payment options or to determine if you qualify for Medical Assistance, call our Financial Counselor at at 354-6331 or 354-2383 ext. 183. You can also view our Patient Financial Assistance summary here.

In response to feedback from patients, we have changed the appearance of our statements to make them easier to read.

 

Pre-Admission Review

Remember to contact your insurance company prior to any scheduled hospital stay. A pre-admission review for hospital stays over 24 hours may be required, and failure to obtain one may affect your benefit payments.

What to Bring
When you arrive to be admitted for an inpatient stay or outpatient visit, please remember to bring the following:

  • Insurance Cards and driver’s license or other photo identification.
  • Employer information, address and phone number
  • The phone number of a family member or friend
  • A list of any medications and allergies
  • Any personal items you might need
