Insurance & Financial Information
How your hospital bill works
Your hospital bill is based on the charges incurred while you are a patient, including room, nursing care and other hospital ancillary services—plus any outstanding balance from pre-hospitalization testing performed at Emerson Hospital. If you have insurance coverage, you may have co-payments or deductibles determined by your insurer.
Pay Your Bill
Physicians/Private Duty Nursing Fees
Your physician’s fees are not included in your hospital bill. You will receive separate bills from physicians and/or surgeons who participated in your diagnosis and treatment, including:
- Your personal physician
- Emergency Department physician
- Private duty nurses
Co-Payments for Hospital-based procedures
For elective procedures and tests for both inpatients and outpatients, Emerson will be collecting co-payments and co-insurance prior to date of service, or on the date of service.
