Patient Accounts / Insurance Claims
As a courtesy Regional Health Rapid City Hospital files insurance claims on your behalf. Patient Financial Services will file a claim to all insurance companies identified by you at the time of admission provided a balance is owed. The claims are filed in a sequential manner: primary insurance, secondary insurance and so on. Patient Financial Services will extend a grace period of 45 days allowing time for insurance processing. Patient Financial Services will send a statement to your attention, indicating the status of the account within 50 days.
You may request an itemized copy of your bill by placing a check in the box labeled "Please check and return if you would like to receive an itemized statement" on the SUMMARY OF SERVICES PERFORMED statement you receive.
