Insurance coverage varies by company and in most cases certain deductibles must be met to obtain benefits. It is necessary to work with Madonna and your insurance company to determine what coverage is available during your stay. Insurance benefits will be verified the week of your admission. This verification of benefits does not guarantee payment of claims. In most cases, the amount paid by the insurance company is not determined until the claim or bill is submitted. Any questions concerning insurance coverage should be directed to Patient Financial Services.
You have the right to a complete and accurate billing for the services you received during your stay at Madonna. Patient Financial Services is available to assist you with any questions concerning your bill. If you think your bill is inaccurate, please write to us at:
