Understanding My Hospital Bill
Some payments may be required from you at the time services are provided including:
- Insurance deductibles
- Payment for services not covered by insurance
The bill you receive from Anderson Hospital reflects services received during your visit, which may include:
- Nursing care
- Special services ordered by your physician, such as x-rays or laboratory tests
Other Professional Fees
If you have certain tests or treatments in the hospital, you may receive bills from physicians you did not see in person. These bills are for professional services rendered by these doctors in diagnosing and interpreting test results while you were a patient. These services have been ordered by your attending physician. Pathologists, radiologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, intensivists, hospitalists, anesthesiologists and other specialists perform these services and are required to submit separate bills. If you have questions about these bills, please call the number printed on the statement you receive from them.
If you have insurance coverage, we will bill your insurance carrier soon after healthcare services have been provided. However, if you do not have insurance coverage, you will receive the bill directly. The bill will clearly state the services provided and when your payment is due.
If you are uninsured or under-insured, you may qualify for financial assistance from Anderson Hospital.
