Clinic Facility Charge for Medicare Patients (Provider-based Billing)
Provider-based billing is another name for how Meriter bills Medicare for our clinics. We bill Medicare one charge for the facility, which covers the operating expenses of the clinic, and another charge for the physician/provider services. Regardless of what insurance you have, the combined charged amount is the same.
Pay Your Healthcare Bill Online
Our Bill Pay Service allows you to securely submit payment for your Meriter Hospital, Meriter Home Health or Meriter Laboratories bill in the most efficient manner possible - online with your credit card.
How Physicians and Specialists Bill
Bills you receive from Meriter Hospital are for hospital services only. Physicians bill separately for their services. If your treatment required the services of a radiologist, pathologist, anesthesiologist or any other medical specialist, they will also bill separately.
