As a courtesy to you, the hospital will bill your insurance company. If your insurance company requests additional information from you, please respond as soon as possible. A delay in returning requested information may delay payment to your account. After your discharge, the hospital will send you a monthly statement to keep you informed of any insurance payments and the balance of your account. Please check your statement carefully. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our business office at 1-800-430-3762.
Please keep in mind that (with the exception of HMOs) your hospital coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company. We will work with your insurance company to expedite your claim, however, you are ultimately responsible for your account.
If you do not have medical insurance, please contact our financial counselor at 610-466-4284.
Please note that your hospital bill does not include fees for the professional services of your physician, surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist, pathologist, consulting physicians and emergency room physicians. You will receive separate billings for services provided by physicians and specialists.
