About Your Bill and Insurance Coverage
To continue providing services, our hospitals must receive compensation for those services. An inpatient hospital bill includes charges for your room, linen services, nursing care and meals as well as certain other goods and services ordered by your physician.
When a patient is discharged, the hospital submits the bill to the patient’s insurance company, if you have insurance through an employer or the state. If a patient does not have insurance, the bill becomes that patient’s responsibility. Additional payment options may be available if you meet program criteria or guidelines for financial assistance.
Hospital services not covered by your insurance are billed to the patient. For questions about a hospital bill or financial assistance, call the patient accounting department, 724-689-1850 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Communication (telephone, etc.) fees are not covered by any insurance.
A separate bill is sent from a patient’s physician(s), labs or other health care providers who perform services during a hospital stay. Physician services that can be billed separately include anesthesiology, radiology, emergency room, neurology, oncology, echocardiography, pathology, physiology and others. Arrangements for these and other services not provided directly by the hospital are the patient’s responsibility.
