Your hospital bill reflects charges incurred during your stay, although it may not be complete when you are discharged. Your bill covers the following:
- The basic daily rate, which includes your room, meals, nursing care, etc.;
- Charges for special services, which include items your physician orders for you, such as X-rays or laboratory tests.
You will receive a separate bill for professional services from each physician involved in your care, which may include a radiologist, anesthesiologist, pathologist, emergency room physician, personal physician and any physician asked by your personal physician to consult on your care. If you have questions about these bills, please call the number printed on the statements you receive from these physicians.
The hospital is responsible for submitting bills to your insurance company and will do everything possible to expedite your claim. But you should remember that you are responsible for payment of your hospital bill. Many healthcare plans have deductibles or co-pays that are due at the time of service.
We have several payment options available to assist you in paying your bill. Please let our staff know if you have special financial needs.
