Billing & Payment
About your Bill
Your hospital bill will include a room charge, which covers room, meals, nursing care, housekeeping, maintenance, medical records and admitting services. Your bill will also include itemized charges for specific ancillary services such as laboratory, medications, X-rays and use of the operating room, surgical day care, recovery room, physical therapy and other services.
Your bill will not include visits by your physician and fees for radiology (interpretation of X-rays), anesthesiology, emergency medicine, surgery, and other professional services and consultations provided by physicians. These will be billed separately by the physician.
In most cases, St. Elizabeth's Medical Center will be reimbursed for your hospitalization directly by your health insurance carrier. If you are insured by a commercial insurance company, it will be necessary for you to forward signed insurance authorizing release of information and authorization for benefits to the hospital prior to your discharge. In the event of specially arranged HMOs or case management insurance, we may not need such forms.
Prior to or at the time of service, payment of any known patient responsible charges will be due, e.g. co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance.
