Thank you for choosing Brodstone Healthcare as your primary care provider. We are committed to providing you with quality and affordable healthcare. We now have additional resources for patients regarding the cost of procedures. We want to be as transparent as possible so our patients know what to expect when they receive their bills.
Please remember that medical insurance is a private contract between you and your insurance company, but we will assist you in every way possible. Please bring your insurance cards with you when visiting the hospital or clinic.
By providing your insurance card, Brodstone is able to process the claim for you. The check will be sent directly to the hospital and applied to your account. Though the hospital does process the insurance claim for you, the ultimate responsibility for payment of your bills is yours.
Your monthly statements include charges from Brodstone Healthcare, Brodstone Family Medical Center–Superior, Brodstone Family Medical Center–Nelson, and Brodstone Medical Center–Edgar. Some hospital services provided to patients require consultation of a physician specialist such as a radiologist, surgeon, pathologist, or cardiologist. You will receive a separate statement from these physician specialists in addition to your hospital bill for hospital services.
If you have any questions regarding your bill, please contact the business office at 402-879-3281.

All inpatient and outpatient claims must be submitted by the hospital. Please bring your Medicare or Medicaid eligibility card to the hospital. Brodstone Healthcare will file the patient’s Medicare claim for hospital charges, and supplemental policies which the patient may have.
