Helpful things to remember when visiting the hospital:
- Bring in your insurance card each time you come to the hospital. Every visit is a new account number and a new service.
- If any information about you has changed, such as an address or phone, please let us know. Incorrect information leads to the delay of your claim payment.
- Keep in mind that Mayo cannot bill two federally funded programs, such as Veterans Administration and Medicare, at the same time. The patient must choose between the two.
- Mayo Physician Billing is responsible for the billing of services provided by Mayo Practice Associates physicians and mid-level providers employed by the hospital in doctors' offices. Their billing address is 47 Dwelley Ave, Dover-Foxcroft, ME 04426. Telephone is 564-8724.
- Know your insurance policy. We post the payments as they come to us. If you have an issue with a deductible or co-payment, please contact your insurance carrier directly, because Mayo does not know the details of individual policies.
- There are many reasons that your insurance company may delay processing your claim. Please keep in mind that you may not receive your co-payment/deductible billing statement for several months.
