Paying Your Bill
Your hospital bill includes a basic daily charge that covers your room, meals, routine nursing care and services for ancillary care such as x-rays, laboratory tests and medications, as well as operating and delivery room fees. Fees for the Emergency Room physician, surgeon, pathologist, radiologist, anesthesiologist, your personal physician, and other consultants are not included and will be billed separately.
If you have insurance coverage, the Hospital will bill your insurance company directly for covered services. However, those services not covered by insurance are the patient's responsibility, as well as any co-pays, co-insurance, or deductibles.
Paying Your Hospital Bill
You will receive a bill for any services not paid by your insurance company. Payments are due within 30 days after you receive your statement. The Hospital depends upon your prompt payment to meet its financial obligations. Cash, money orders, checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted.
If you are unable to pay your hospital bill in full, please contact the Patient Financial Services office. It is important that you contact the office promptly after receiving your first statement. Payment plans are available.

All un-insured patients who are unable to pay their hospital bill in full, will receive information on the Hospital’s Charity Care Program. The application is on the reverse side of your statement. The Hospital’s Charity Care Program covers hospital bills only. Physician bills, medications, routine physicals, immunizations, co-payments, co-insurances, deductibles and other health-related, non-hospital services, equipment, and cosmetic surgery are not covered. All inpatient stays must apply for Medicaid prior to applying for Charity Care. A Medicaid liaison is available to assist you with your application. The Hospital does not and cannot negotiate with other providers on a patient’s behalf for a reduction in fees associated with balances due.
