Accounts & Billing Information

Norton County Hospital's Business Office is located inside the hospital’s east main entrance. Business Office personnel will file patient claims for hospital and clinic services to insurance and conduct appropriate follow up to ensure that claims are paid timely and correctly. It is important to notify the Business Office of any changes in insurance or other information. After insurance payment on a claim, a guarantor statement will be mailed to the patient or the responsible party. Guarantor statements are generated approximately the 20th of each month. The guarantor statement will reflect payments and adjustments received since the last statement and include claims for hospital and clinic services.

Financial assistance applications are available in the Business Office and at each registration point in the hospital and clinic; the application can also be downloaded from the link provided below.
