Billing & Insurance

McAlester Regional Health Center understands that when you’re in need of healthcare, dealing with billing and insurance can quickly become stressful. We’re here to help answer any questions you may have. Just give our Financial Services Department a call at 918.421.8022, or send us an email.

Insurance and Payment Information

As a courtesy to our patients, McAlester Regional Health Center will file a claim directly with the insurance company. After the Claim has been filed, Patient Financial Services (PFS) will follow- up with the claim’s payment status. We will do everything possible to expedite a claim, however, you should remember that your policy is a contract between you and your insurance company, and you have the final responsibility for your hospital bill payment. We encourage you to contact PFS at 918.421.8022 if you have any questions or concerns regarding the insurance payments or the statements received in the mail.

Notice of Uninsured/Underinsured Patient Discount Policy

McAlester Regional Health Center understands that not everyone has adequate health insurance, and many don’t have health insurance at all. That’s why we’ve made it our policy to provide uncompensated, discounted, or financial assistance program services for individuals who have demonstrated a need in excess of insurance or personal resources of funds available through federal, state, and local funding programs. Please call 918.421.6670 or 918.421.6769 to speak with a patient financial counselor regarding the financial assistance program.

Charity Care Financial Assistance

To further service families in need of financial assistance, McAlester Regional Health Center offers Charity Care. This is a program specifically designed to assist patients who meet federal guidelines for poverty level, although cosmetic or self-pay package accounts do not qualify for Financial Assistance.
