Here are some frequently asked questions and answers regarding billing and insurance at HCA Virginia.

  1. Why did I receive separate bills for the hospital and the doctor(s)?

    Services you receive at HCA Virginia are often provided by different doctors including radiologists, cardiologists and other specialists. They are legally required to submit separate bills. If you have a question about a specific bill, call the number provided on the statement you received.

  2. Why didn't my insurance pay for my hospital services?

    Your insurance may have denied a claim for one or more of the following reasons:

    • The service you received was not covered under your plan.
    • The insurance information you provided was incorrect.
    • You received service from a physician outside your plan's network.
    • You were not covered by your plan at the time you received care.
    • Your primary care physician did not process a referral for the services you received before they were rendered.

    For a detailed explanation, contact your insurance company directly.

  3. Can I pay my bill over time?

    Yes, payment arrangements may be made with HCA Virginia by contacting the billing department at the hospital where you were treated. (See list below.)

  4. I don't have any insurance. Is there any financial help available?

    Yes. At HCA Virginia we have an extensive Charity Care and Financial Assistance Program, including help for those who are uninsured. Learn more about our charity care and financial discount policy.

  5. What should I do if I have a question about my bill?

    If you have any questions about your statement, or believe there is an error, contact the billing department at the hospital where you were treated. (See list below.)

  6. I belong to a managed care plan. What should I do before coming to the hospital?

    Read your insurance information closely to make sure you have followed all guidelines for referrals, or call your insurance company for assistance. If you don't follow your plan requirements, it could result in more out-of-pocket expense for you. Your primary care doctor plays an important role in this process, so be sure to communicate with him/her.

  7. I belong to a managed care plan but needed to be seen in the emergency room. What should I do now?

    After receiving emergency services from HCA Virginia, you will need to contact your primary care physician or your insurance company within 24 hours to explain your circumstances and ask for authorization.

Affordable Care Act Facts and Information

What is the New Law?

The new federal health care law has many functions:

  1. You can't be discriminated against. You can no longer be denied health care coverage because of a pre-existing condition.
  2. You may receive financial support. There is help for people with lower incomes who, in the past, may not have been able to afford health insurance. The cost will depend on the package you choose and your current income level.
  3. One important fact: People who don't sign up will pay a fine when they file their income tax return.
  4. You have the power to shop, compare and choose. Low-cost plans will cover everything from routine checkups, doctor visits and preventative care, to advance care including cancer screenings and prescriptions drugs. You pick the one that works for your budget and family.

When Do These Laws Take Effect?

There has been a great deal of discussion and confusion about the new federal health care law. The biggest parts of the law start taking affect now:

  1. The health care marketplaces, which let you choose between a variety of different health care plans opened October 1, 2013.
  2. Actual insurance coverage through the marketplaces begins January 1, 2014.
  3. Financial assistance with insurance also begins January 1, 2014.
