Billing & Insurance

At Rushford, we are committed to providing you with the best available healthcare along with convenient billing services, payment options and financial assistance.


Please bring your insurance cards and necessary co-payment for your visit.

As a courtesy, Rushford will submit bills to your insurance company and do everything possible to advance your claim. However, it may become necessary for you to contact your insurance company, or supply additional information to them, for claims processing requirements or to expedite payment. You should remember that your policy is a contract between you and your insurance company, and you have the final responsibility for payment of your healthcare bill.

Financial Counseling

Financial Counselors are available to assist families and patients with a variety of financial needs. We are able to assist those who are uninsured, under-insured, need financial assistance, or need to set up payment arrangements. The financial counseling staff may assist you with applying for different government programs, or give you advice on how to proceed. If you do not qualify for any type of government programs, we can review your financial status to see if you meet guidelines for special programs or financial assistance.

You may contact a Financial Counselor by calling 203.238.6878.

Financial Assistance

Under Hartford HealthCare's Financial Assistance program you may qualify for free or discounted care if you are either uninsured or under-insured.

Keep informed on the health insurance market and its changes.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) created guidelines for a new kind of marketplace for health insurance. 

  • Think of an exchange as an online marketplace. It’s a website where shoppers can research all their options and then buy health insurance.
  • The Affordable Care Act is expected to help increase access to health care. Health insurance exchanges will be an important part of that.
  • Depending on the type of insurance coverage you wish to purchase and your total household income, you may be eligible for reduced rates on the premiums you pay.
