Billing Simplified For Our Community
To better serve you and help meet your needs, we are adopting a new patient
billing process effective May 1, 2018. As we transition, you may receive
more than one billing statement as we explain below. We ask for your patience
as we work to improve your experience with billing at Kaweah Delta.
Our New Billing Process: What You Need to Know
New Statement, New Look:
Your new billing statement will be inclusive of all services provided
after May 1. It will be easier to read and will allow us to provide a
more accurate description of the services you receive at Kaweah Delta
Health Care District.
One Family Statement:
You will receive one statement listing all the services that were provided
to you and the dependents you are financially responsible for at Kaweah
Delta Health Care District. If you receive care at our health clinics,
you will receive a separate statement.
Account Balance and Payment Plans:
If you have an outstanding balance or a payment plan for services prior
to May 1, 2018, you will continue to make payments and receive separate
statements on those services until all account balances are paid in full.
• Statements for services provided at Kaweah Delta Health Care District
are printed in blue.
• Statements for services provided at Kaweah Delta Rural Health Clinics
are printed in orange. Account balances and payment plans for services
provided after May 1, 2018 will receive separate statements and require
separate payment plans.
• All services received after May 1, 2018 will be combined and printed in teal.
More Accurate & Timely Billing:
Our new system allows us to automatically check your insurance at registration.
This helps us cut down on delays and ensure we are billing the correct
insurance for your care. Our goal is that you receive billing statements
that accurately reflect the amount you owe for services.
How to request a copy of your medical records:
Patients can request copies of their medical records by completing our
form entitled “Authorization for Use or Disclosure of Health Information”
and by presenting valid identification. You can download and print the
authorization form by going to our Kaweah Delta website for
Medical Records. Or, we can fax, email or mail you an authorization form. To request a
form to be sent to you call 559-624-2218.
