In most cases, Morton Hospital will be reimbursed for your hospitalization directly by your health insurance carrier. If you are insured by a commercial insurance company, it will be necessary for you to forward signed insurance authorizing release of information and authorization for benefits to the hospital prior to your discharge. In the event of specially arranged HMOs or case management insurance, we may not need such forms.
Prior to or at the time of service, payment of any known patient responsible charges will be due (e.g. co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance, etc.).
Payment may be mailed to:
88 Washington St.
Taunton, MA 02780

You may also remit payment to our cashier:
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
