1. Patient Medical Bills: These are mailed directly to a patient’s address and typically include the itemized cost of services provided as well as any applicable taxes or insurance payments. These bills may include details on financial assistance or payment options, if necessary.

3. Medication Orders: These mails usually come directly from pharmacies and contain orders for prescribed medications that need to be filled in order for a patient’s treatment plan to be completed successfully.
4. Mail packages containing medical supplies: These mails are usually delivered by third party vendors. They contain equipment, furniture, and any other necessary items for the operation of healthcare facilities.
