Billing and Insurance
Sentara Medical Group is dedicated to ensuring you understand the billing process and the resources available to you. We offer multiple ways to pay your bill - online, through the mail, on the phone, or in person at the Sentara Medical Group office.
We encourage all of our patients to sign up for Sentara MyChart. It’s a great way to communicate with your care teams, schedule an appointment, request a prescription refill and view test or lab results – all on your own time. It also keeps you up-to-date on when you’re due for routine vaccinations or other preventative screenings so that you can be a more active – and proactive – part of your healthcare team.
One of the ways we deliver quality care is by helping connect you to additional information and resources even in between your visits to our office. Below you will find links to online resources, as well as health information and a wide-range of disease-specifics support groups offered at Sentara.
