St. Joseph's Access Department will verify your insurance coverage and obtain authorization from your insurance carrier, when necessary. Please note that your insurance company may not pay for all of your services if your benefit plan requires out of pocket expenses to be paid (such as, deductibles, co-payments, and co-insurance) or if you are required to seek services (such as lab, radiology, etc.) at specific locations/companies (such as Lab Corp, Advanced Radiology, Quest Diagnostics, etc.). Deductibles and co-payments will be collected at the time of visit.
