Billing and insurance
Services provided by our network will be billed to your insurance. We will obtain necessary authorizations from your insurance and physicians to determine home health care coverage eligibility. We will provide you with a financial responsibility letter outlining your insurance benefits and cost specific to the services rendered by our agency. This will help you make an informed decision about your care.
For patients with Medicare, Medi-Cal and or Private Insurance, we will bill your insurance directly. Patient responsibility, identified by your insurance carrier, will be billed to you on a monthly basis. For patients that do not have insurance coverage, we will bill you or your guarantor directly for the services rendered. As the patient, you are ultimately responsible for payment for the services rendered.
For any questions concerning billing or to make a payment, please contact the revenue cycle department at 714-712 7028. If you are unable to speak to someone directly, please leave a message and representative will contact you within one business day.
We have multilingual clinicians to meet a variety of languages represented in the community we serve. In addition, we provide telephone interpreter services through Pacific Interpreters.
