You may receive several separate bills relating to your hospital stay as an inpatient. The hospital charges include services and supplies you received. Your daily care charge includes your room, 24-hour nursing and other medical care, housekeeping, meals, and the support services of a large staff working around the clock to serve you.
Operating room charges, laboratory tests, x-rays, diagnostic procedures, oxygen medications and special equipment are separate charges from the daily hospital care charge.
Charges from physicians and surgeons are not included in your hospital bill. You will receive a separate bill for their services. If you received services from emergency department physicians, pathologists or radiologists, you will receive separate bills from them, also.
You as the patient are ultimately responsible for the payment of your bill. We will gladly submit your claim to your insurance company and assist you in coordinating claims. You should contact your insurance company if payment has not been made within 45 days of your discharge.
You should receive an Explanation of benefits (EOB) from your insurance company indicating how much the insurance company paid and how much you owe. Contact your insurance company if you do not receive an EOB within six weeks from the date of service.
You may make arrangements for paying your bill by calling our business office at 569-6163 or you may pay your bill online.
