Billing and Insurance

What a Hospital Bill Covers

A hospital bill covers the cost of your room, meals, 24-hour nursing care, laboratory work, tests, medication, therapy, and the services of hospital employees. You will receive a separate bill from your doctors for their professional services. If you have questions about these separate bills, please call the number printed on each statement.

To make payment on a bill, you may pay your bill online, visit our Patient Financial Services Department, or call (337) 527-4232.
