Deposit Guide for Services at UTMB

The Deposit Guide for Services at UTMB should be used as a general guide for each patient to give them an estimate of what could be expected for any particular service at UTMB. Deposits are required for all services at UTMB regardless of your financial classification. The deposit is a fee, paid in advance, that is a partial payment toward the cost of a service. Patients will be balanced billed for the remaining cost of their services. These services include outpatient visits, tests, procedures, emergency room visits and inpatient admissions. Deposit amounts vary in these different areas based on estimated charges or services. If the physician makes a determination that you need a procedure or surgery, staff in that area would be able to inform you of what your specific deposit amount would be at that time. The guide is divided into several different categories of financial responsibility. The financial screening process identifies which category you would fall under. Fees are subject to change at any time.

Special Instructions for SELF-EMPLOYED INDIVIDUALS and/or NOTICE OF NON-FILING: For self-employed individuals and/or individuals that have not filed a return in the most recent tax year, there are special requirements. You must provide the entire copy of your most recent's year income tax return for proof of income. If your income tax return is not prepared by a professional preparer with a Tax ID number on the copy of the return, UTMB requires that the individual obtain an official transcript copy of the income tax submission. (If you do not file an income tax return, you are required to provide a notice of non-filing from the IRS acknowledging no tax return has been filed. You would still request the IRS Transcript via this method.) The transcript is obtained from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and is considered the official copy of your IRS return. You must obtain the IRS transcript prior to your appointment for financial screening. This form may be requested by contacting the IRS at (800) 829-1040 or see the IRS web site for details. The transcript can be ordered by completing a Form 4506-T (PDF) or calling (800) 829-1040 and following the prompts in the recorded message. There is no charge for the transcript and you should receive it in approximately 10 business days after requesting it. Tax return transcripts are generally available for the current and past three years. If the Form 4506-T is used to request the transcript, please have the IRS transcript sent back to you and then forward a copy to Financial Counseling via mail, fax, or drop it by our office.
