Our primary care locations are considered “hospital-based” clinics. This designation affects how you are charged and what you may be required to pay for services at these clinics.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a hospital-based clinic?
A hospital-based clinic is a licensed outpatient facility owned and operated by Regional One Health. It is a department of the hospital and therefore subject to stricter government regulation. When you see a physician or receive services in a hospital-based clinic, you are being treated within the hospital rather than in a physician’s office.
How does this affect my bill?
The Hospital’s bill may include a clinic/facility fee for the services, facilities, staff and equipment provided by the Hospital, in addition to charges for any procedures done at the clinics.
Does this mean I will pay more for services at the clinics?
What should I ask my insurance carrier?
How does this affect a patient who has Medicare?
In a hospital-based clinic, Medicare patients will receive two (2) separate bills for services provided – one for physician services and one for the hospital services. Depending on the services being provided, Medicare patients may incur higher out-of-pocket expenses for a service at a hospital-based clinic than they would at a physician’s office.
