What other bills might I receive?

Please be advised that depending on your insurance coverage and the hospital’s arrangement with your carrier, in addition to the hospital bill for the use of the facility, equipment, technical personnel and other facility costs, there may be separate bills generated for the professional or physician services, including for Anesthesiologists, Radiologists, Cardiologists, Pathologists, Physician Assistants and certain other Physician Services, including Emergency Room, Psychiatry and Wound Care/Hyperbaric. Should you receive such a bill and have any questions or concerns, please contact the appropriate party here.

What is my responsibility?

As a patient, you are responsible for:

  • Providing billing and insurance information that, to the best of your knowledge, is complete and accurate.
  • Contacting your insurance company before receiving services when precertification or prior authorization is required by your insurance company.
  • Contacting your insurance company when notification of emergency treatment or hospitalization is required.
  • Paying deductibles and copays at the time of service.
  • Paying your account promptly or contacting us when payment is a concern.

Why didn't my insurance pay my balance in full?

To confirm your responsibility under your insurance policy, please contact your insurance carrier and refer to the explanation of benefits they have provided.
