Billing and Insurance
Your hospital bill
Your hospital bill reflects the services you received during your stay. A basic daily room rate includes:
In addition, there may be charges for special services, which include items your physician orders for you, such as X-rays or laboratory tests.
If you have certain tests or treatments in the hospital, you may receive a bill from a doctor whom you did not see in person. These bills are for providers who diagnosed and interpreted test results while you were a patient. Pathologists, cardiologists, radiologists, anesthesiologists and other specialists who perform these services are required to submit separate bills. If you have any questions about your hospital bill, we encourage you to call the number printed on your statement and speak to one of our financial counselors, who will be glad to assist you.
