Billing and Financial Assistance
The hospital bill includes the cost of your room, meals, 24-hour nursing care, laboratory work, tests, medication, therapy, and the services of hospital employees. You will receive a separate bill from your physicians for their professional services. If you have questions about your bills, please call the number printed on each statement.
The hospital is responsible for submitting bills to your insurance company and will do everything possible to expedite your claim. Keep in mind that your policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. That means you are responsible for paying any charges not paid by your insurance.
If you have questions about your hospital bill, please call the Billing Department at 410-225-8814.
