Estimating Your Costs Prior to Your Service
Understanding your health benefits and your estimated out-of-pocket expenses is important to us at Rice. Because health care benefits vary, we encourage you to contact your health plan to confirm that your service will be covered. For an estimate of the cost of your service, you may contact one of our Patient Access Registrars at 1-800-854-5093.
Pre-Service Payment Option
With some insurance plans, there may be an out-of-pocket cost to you for your medical
expenses. This option is available as a way to pre-pay a portion of your bill prior to services
being rendered to help reduce your post-service balance.
