NW Indiana’s Billing Policy

NW Indiana ER & Hospital honors private insurance plans. We also accept out-of-pocket payment in the form of cash, checks, or credit cards.

Your ER co-pay will be collected at the time of your visit. We will then bill your insurance company for the policy’s emergency room benefits.

There will be two different claims mailed to your insurance company: the facility bill and the physician bill.

If you have any questions concerning your bill, please contact our Billing Department, Tyvan Billing at 713-357-2535.

Insurance Benefits

If you have health insurance, you will receive an EOB (explanation of benefits) from your insurance company in the mail. Taking the time to be familiar with your benefits will help you make the best decisions when seeking medical care. It is important to note that the EOB is not a bill.

NW Indiana ER & Hospital is classified as out-of-network with many insurance companies; however, NW Indiana ER & Hospital does honor all in-network deductibles and benefits.
