Bryan Health is dedicated to making your experience at the medical center as positive as possible. Our staff is here to help you know and understand your options for payment and insurance information. Please be familiar with the following information before your stay at Bryan Health:
Price Estimate Line
If you would like an estimate of the cost of a test or procedure, call the Price Estimate Line at (402) 481-4900.
If your insurance card indicates pre-authorization or if pre-certification is required, please contact your insurance company and/or physician's office before you are admitted to Bryan Medical Center East or Bryan Medical Center West. Failure to obtain authorization may result in reduced insurance benefits from your insurance company.
If you participate in a Primary Care Physician Directed/Preferred Provider insurance plan and have been referred to a specialist by your primary care physician, you need to obtain a referral authorization to assure coverage for your medical center services. Please bring this referral authorization when you are admitted to the medical center.
Your insurance coverage will be verified before or during your hospitalization, and we will submit appropriate medical center claims to your insurance company following your dismissal. If your group insurance requires an Employer Claim form, please complete and submit it upon dismissal.
