Our Patient Account Department is here to help you manage your Southeastern Med hospital bill. Because of the Affordable Care Act, everyone has more choices for getting health insurance coverage. Depending on your income, you may be able to get health coverage for you and your whole family at no cost or low cost through the Health Insurance Marketplace. For most people, it will also be a very simple, very fast process to enroll in coverage.
The Health Insurance Marketplace is a new way to find coverage that fits your budget and meets your healthcare needs. You can apply, compare plan options, and find out if you can get lower costs on monthly premiums or receive free of low-cost coverage by visiting www.HealthCare.gov or contacting Southeastern Med's Certified Application Counselors.
