Your bill will automatically be sent to your insurance company if you have provided us with the necessary information. Monthly statements will be mailed to you to keep you apprised of the status of your account or to let you know what the balance is after your insurance company has paid. As the patient, you are the person ultimately responsible for payment of your hospital bill. You may also pay for any services with your MasterCard, Visa or American Express credit card. You can use the card(s) at the time of discharge or when you receive a bill from the hospital. Some insurance plans require pre-certification prior to admission. Please follow all requirements set forth in your insurance plan and make any arrangements deemed necessary by your insurance company. You will receive separate billings from the physicians involved in your care and treatment. This includes pathologists, who interpret laboratory test results; anesthesiologists, who administer the anesthesia; and your radiologist, who reads, interprets and forwards results of radiology, nuclear medicine and ultrasound tests to your physician.
