Billing FAQs

We are working to resolve this issue as soon as possible and apologize for the inconvenience.

Will Ashe Memorial Hospital file my insurance?

When will I be billed and what will be included?

Ashe Memorial Hospital bills each encounter as a separate account and you can have multiple accounts for any date of service or visit. When the balance due on an individual account is determined to be patient responsibility, a statement will be sent to the responsible party. As new accounts become patient responsibility, they will be added to your monthly statement. Ashe Memorial Hospital will only bill for services provided by our facility. You may receive a separate bill from Emergency Department physicians, radiology providers, lab providers, or physicians in our local practices.

How do I request an itemized bill?

Call Ashe Memorial Hospital's customer service line at 336-846-0725 and ask one of our Financial Counselors to provide you an itemized bill. You will receive your itemized bill within 5 to 10 business days of the request.
