The NOMC is part of the LSU Healthcare Network and at times you may receive a bill larger than you expected. We can offer financial assistance only to NOMC patients who receive a written referral from our Family Nurse Practitioner in advance of treatment.
If you seek medical care without a written referral from our Family Nurse Practitioner, you are responsible for the entire bill, regardless of whether or not the doctor is within the LSU Healthcare Network.
If you received a written referral from our Family Nurse Practitioner and receive a bill larger than you expected, do the following:
- Make sure you completed the ELIGIBILITY FORM FOR DISCOUNTED SERVICE with the referred doctor. Be sure to keep the information up to date, and keep a copy in your files.
- Ask questions before you leave regarding YOUR portion of the medical bill so you will know what to expect. The NOMC staff can assist you in sorting out the paperwork.
