If you have insurance, the hospital and/or physician likely will file a claim with your insurer. You will be billed for your deductible and copayment amount. Your health plan will send you an Explanation of Benefits that shows the amount billed, the amount paid by the health plan and the patient’s responsibility. The following resources may assist you in understanding how claims are filed and paid.
In addition to your hospital bill, you may receive separate bills from your physician(s), including: emergency physicians, radiologists, consulting physicians, pathologists, anesthesiologists and surgeons.
