It is very important for patients to understand what to expect from their insurance carrier prior to an admission. For many patients, accessing insurance benefits is the most frustrating aspect of the admissions process. At Hill Crest, we will do everything we can to assist the patient in securing appropriate benefits for the services we provide. We accept Medicaid for adolescents and adults, TRICARE®*, Medicare and most HMOs and commercial plans.

Hill Crest will:

❖ Contact your insurance provider to verify benefits
❖ Complete any necessary pre-certification process required by your insurance company
❖ File all appropriate documentation to claim payment for your care
