Navigating the high cost of health care and related health insurance programs can be confusing. The UGL Business Services Department assists patients with billing questions and issues – allowing patients to focus on their health.
UGL’s mission is to provide health care to all people in the Upper Great Lakes region regardless of their ability to pay. However, the patient is responsible to make payment arrangements for any outstanding balances.
UGL files and attempts to collect payment for services from the insurance company as a courtesy for the patient. However, payment for services received is the responsibility of the patient. Account balances remaining after all anticipated insurance payments have been received, will be treated as self-pay accounts.
Patients are encouraged to contact their insurance companies to assist in the payment of their account. Often insurance companies will expedite payment if they are contact by the insured individual.
