In an effort to assist parents and legal guardians with the financial aspects of a child's hospitalization, Miami Children's Hospital Patient Financial Services Department is available to process billing to insurance carriers when applicable, and explain statements and charges to the financially responsible parties.
Payment of charges that are not covered by the patient's insurance carrier (e.g: co-pays and deductibles) are due prior to the time of discharge.
Parents or guardians are encouraged to contact the financial counselors from the Patient Financial Services Department during the patient's stay in the hospital to expedite the discharge process. They can be reached by calling (305) 666-6511, ext. 6525.
For the convenience of the parent or guardian, the hospital accepts checks, and the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
The Patient Financial Services Department staff explains to the parent(s) and guardian(s) that services provided by specialists such as an anesthesiologist, pathologist, radiologist, surgeon and private physician(s) are not reflected in the hospital statement. These services are billed to the family directly.
