4. Do you do settlements on account balances?
Unfortunately, we do not offer additional discounts as we have already applied a discount based on our contract with your insurance or based upon our self-pay policies. We offer payment plan options. Please review our Financial Assistance Policies for additional assistance.
5. Why did my account go to collections?
Once an account is determined to be the patient’s responsibility, Orlando Health will make a combination of phone and mail attempts over a 60-90 day period to reach the patient in order to obtain payment in full or to establish an agreed upon payment plan. If neither are done at the end of this time, the hospital has no choice but to seek assistance form one of our bad debt recovery companies.
6. Why am I being sent to collections when I did not receive a bill?
All statements from Orlando Health and their affiliates are sent based on the information obtained at the time of service. If inaccurate information is obtained, Orlando Health will not be able to reach you. It is very important that you confirm your current address during your registration; additionally, if you are insured your insurance company will send you an explanation of benefits after they have processed your claim. If you receive this and have not received a statement from Orlando Health, it would be in your best interest to reach out to the hospital at 407.650.3800. You can assist in preventing your account from going into collection by contacting the hospital in a timely manner after receiving your explanation of benefits.

21. If Orlando Health accepts my insurance, do I also need to check that my doctor, who practices at Orlando Health, accepts my insurance?
Yes. Healthcare practitioners who provide services in the hospital may or may not participate with the same health insurers or health maintenance organizations as the hospital. It is recommended to confirm/contact the healthcare practitioner who will provide services in the hospital to determine which health insurers and health maintenance organizations the practitioner participates in as either a network provider or preferred provider.
