Frequently asked questions about our billing processes and other pertinent information about your stay at MRMC.
What am I responsible to pay when I visit the hospital?
You are responsible for your co-pay and your remaining deductible. Self-Pay Patients are responsible for self-pay pricing. Please contact us at (855) 225-9275 for additional information.
I have insurance, why am I receiving a bill?
If you receive a bill and you have insurance, you may owe a balance because of your co-Ins, co-pay, and/or deductible.
What is Co-Insurance, Co-Pay, and Deductible?
Co-Insurance is the percentage of costs of a covered health care service you pay after you pay your deductible.
How it works: You’ve paid $1,500 in health care expenses and met your deductible. When you go to the doctor, instead of paying all costs, you and your plan share the cost. For example, your plan pays 80 percent. The 20 percent you pay is your coinsurance.
The Deductible is the amount you pay for health care services before your health insurance begins to pay.
How it works: If your plan’s deductible is $1,500, you’ll pay 100 percent of eligible health care expenses until the bills total $1,500.
Co-pay is a fixed amount you pay for a health care service, usually when you receive the service. The amount can vary by the type of service.
How it works: Your plan determines what your copay is for different types of services, and when you have one. You may have a copay before you’ve finished paying towards your deductible. You may also have a copay after you pay your deductible, and when you owe coinsurance.
Can I set up a payment plan?
Yes. Call (855) 225-9275. Our billing team will set you up on a payment plan.
Who do I call with questions about my bill?

Hospitals and Doctors Charge Separately
Once you are discharged from the hospital, you may receive a separate bill from the physician, anesthesiologist, or emergency department physician. These physicians are not employees of the hospital.
If you have questions about the cost of a medical procedure, please call our Business Office Director at (580) 782- 3353 and we will be happy to help you.
Patients may pre-admit once admission has been scheduled. Admissions are processed via the registration clerks in the front lobby. After hours admissions are processed at the registration desk in the Emergency Department. Once you arrive on the nursing unit, the staff will help you get acquainted with your room and your surroundings.
Patients undergoing outpatient surgery should report to the registration desk in the front lobby. Outpatient registration hours are Mon – Fri; from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm.
You will need to bring a small number of personal items to the hospital, such as pajamas, robe, slippers, and personal toilet articles including cases for glasses, contact lenses, hearing aids and dentures. If you don’t have these items, we can provide them for you. If you bring with you or any of the prior mentioned items are brought to you after your admission, please make sure your nurse is aware that you have them in your possession. These items are your responsibility. Mangum Regional Medical Center can’t be held responsible for lost items, but we will do everything we can to help you protect your personal items. Bring your driver’s license, insurance card, claim forms, and your co-pay and deductible amounts.
Do not bring watches, jewelry, cash or other valuables to the hospital. Mangum Regional Medical Center will only be responsible for these items if they are deposited into our safe. Ask your nurse about safe deposits upon admission. If you bring your personal medications with you, you will need to give them to your nurse to be stored until your discharge. Your physician and the hospital pharmacy will provide all of your medication while you are in the hospital. There may be instances when we don’t stock a particular medication or a particular strength of medication and may need to use your personal medications at no cost to you. However, it is important to provide your physician with a list of all medications that you are currently taking including strengths and frequency.
When you are medically ready to leave the hospital, your physician will write a discharge order on your medical chart. Your nurses and your physician will discuss discharge information with you, including special diets, medications and limitations on your activities. You will be given written discharge instructions for reference after discharge. The case manager will assist you in making arrangements for home care or other community services, if needed. Your physician will let you know if an office visit is necessary after discharge.
Be sure to check your room for all personal belongings and reclaim any valuables from the hospital safe. When your transportation arrives, please allow your nurse to escort you from the hospital.
