Our Business Office staff is dedicated to making the “business” of your health care as smooth as possible.

Before Your Appointment

Follow this checklist to help ensure a smooth billing process.

  1. Contact your insurance company to make sure you understand your benefits and your plan’s requirements.
  2. Confirm that Rice County District Hospital is a contracted provider of services for your plan.
  3. Obtain a referral, if required by your insurance company.* Discuss this with your primary care physician prior to scheduling an appointment with one of our specialists.
  4. Know the limitations of the referral and obtain an extension or expansion of the scope of the referral if needed.

*Please note: Rice County District Hospital may not require a referral for your service, but your insurance company may require them to provide coverage of your visit or procedure.


Payment Policy 

Please have your insurance information with you at the time of registration.  Rice County District Hospital accepts all insurances, except out-of-state Medicaid.

All accounts are due when you receive your first statement from the hospital.  If you are unable to pay your bill, please contact the Business Office.  Our staff will gladly work with you to arrange payments, or to see if you will qualify for any other programs.
