Patient and Family Resources

Admissions

We want your experience at Alleghany Health to be as simple as possible. To help you with the admissions process, we encourage you or a family member to be familiar with your insurance coverage and any special requirements and/or restrictions specified by your insurance carrier. If you do not have insurance, special payment arrangements can be made.

Advance Directives

If you are 18 or older and mentally competent, you have the right to make decisions about your medical treatment. An advance directive is a set of directions you give about the health care that you want if you ever lose the ability to make decisions for yourself. North Carolina has two ways for you to make a formal advance directive. One way is called a living will. The other way is called health care power of attorney. Making a living will or designating a health care power of attorney is your choice. If you become unable to make your own decisions, and you have no living will or health care agent (a person named to make medical decisions for you), your doctor or health care provider will consult with someone close to you about your care.

For additional information regarding a living will or health care power of attorney, please visit the Registration Desk in the hospital lobby.

Case Management

At Alleghany Health, our case management services are designed to assist patients and family members with continuing care arrangements that may be necessary following discharge from the hospital. Our goal is to work with patients and family members, the healthcare team, and community-based agencies to develop a high quality, cost-effective plan that enables them to move smoothly through the healthcare system. Our case manager provides assistance with:

  • Establishing home health services
  • Facilitating the transition from acute care to the Alleghany Health swing bed program
  • Facilitating placement in alternative levels of care
  • Coordinating and scheduling needed therapies
  • Completing discharge planning
  • Ordering or procuring necessary durable medical equipment for home use
  • Utilizing our respite program.

Billing & Insurance

Patient Financial Services strives to provide quality assistance for patients and their families. Whenever you receive a bill from us, it covers the services you received at one of our healthcare facilities. As a courtesy to our patients, we will bill your insurance company, Medicare, or Medicaid on your behalf. We will do our best to obtain payment. You may also receive separate bills from your personal physician, surgeon, pathologist, radiologist, or other healthcare professional. Questions about any of these bills should be directed to the number printed on the statement you receive.

For your convenience, we accept payments via cash, check, credit card, and debit card. Payments can be made at the Financial Assistance office or front desk in the Main Entrance lobby from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. After hours, payments may be made at the Emergency Department Registration Desk.

If you have insurance: We accept most major health insurance plans and managed care programs. Several factors can affect the amount a patient owes the hospital. Some insurance plans may have special requirements for specific tests or procedures. Additionally, some physicians may not participate in your healthcare plan, and their services may not be covered. If you fail to meet your health insurance plan requirements, you may be financially responsible for all or part of the services you receive at the hospital. We encourage you to review your benefits plan to understand your financial responsibility.

If you do not have insurance: No one will be denied necessary medical care due to lack of insurance or inability to pay. You may, however, be asked to pay a deposit when you are admitted or when you register for an outpatient procedure.

If you have questions or concerns about your account, please call our Financial Counselor at 336-372-3299.
