Your Hospital 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. 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.
Southampton Hospital is a participating provider in many health plan networks. You can find a list of the plans in which we participate here. Some health plans use smaller networks for
certain products they offer so it is important to check with your insurance
provider to verify they have a contract with Southampton Hospital that includes
your specific plan. Our list will tell you if we do not participate in all of a health plan’s products.
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.
It is also important
for you to know that the physician services you receive in the Hospital are not
included in the Hospital’s charges. Physicians who provide services at the Hospital may be independent voluntary physicians or they may be employed by the Hospital. Physicians bill for their services separately and may or may not participate
in the same health plans as the Hospital.
