Understanding Your Bills

As a part of the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), your bill for your eye care services at Magill vision Services will come from MUSC.

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and MUSC Physicians (formerly UMA) are considered “provider-based” by the federal government. This means the provider, MUSC, owns the space where the doctor, an employee of MUSC Physicians, works. As a result of this structure, you will receive two bills for the care you receive from Magill Vision Center

One bill will come from MUSC for the facility, supplies, medicines, or nursing care. Another bill will come from MUSC Physicians for the doctor’s fees. 

Many insurance plans pay for health care services provided in an outpatient hospital clinic differently than those provided in a doctor’s office. Your insurance plan may require you to meet your annual deductible before it pays for health care services you receive in an outpatient hospital clinic. Your insurance company may also require you to pay a percentage of the bill, called co-insurance, rather than just an office co-payment. 

If you have questions about how your insurance will cover outpatient hospital clinic visits and how much you will have to pay, please call your insurance provider directly.
