Billing

The Billing Office is Here to Assist You

Our billing team at Ridgecrest Regional Hospital is happy to bill your insurance company as a courtesy to you. In most cases, your bill will be submitted to your carrier within 10 days of your visit. The majority of our claims are billed electronically to ensure accuracy and confidentiality. After your claim is paid by your carrier, you will be sent a monthly statement reflecting any balance due by you. You will be asked for a deposit during the registration process. Services billed independently include: radiology results, pathology, and emergency physician billing. An RRH itemized statement of your account is available upon request.
