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.

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.
