Patients with Insurance or Medicare
We will bill your insurance carrier for the cost of your hospital stay.
However, you are required to pay any charges not covered by insurance.
It is necessary that arrangements be made for settling your bill before
discharge from the hospital.

Throughout your stay, your case is being periodically reviewed to determine
whether hospitalization continues to be necessary. If hospitalization
is determined no longer necessary after consultation with your physician,
insurance benefits may be terminated. This does not mean you must leave
the hospital, however, you will be responsible for any further charges
since your insurance carrier will no longer reimburse for your stay.
Your Hospital Bill
Your hospital bill pays many skilled people serving you 24 hours a day.
It pays for modern drugs and advanced equipment needed for your health
care, carefully planned meals and personalized, around-the-clock professional care.
Your hospital bill will include all of the hospital charges for treatment
and services rendered to you. The bill does not include charges for physicians
involved in your care such as your personal physician, surgeon, pathologist,
anesthesiologist, radiologist, or other physician consultants. You will
receive separate bills from these physicians.
