Your Hospital Bill

Your hospital bill reflects the services you received during your stay. A basic daily room rate includes:

  • Your room
  • Your meals
  • Nursing care
  • Housekeeping
  • Telephone
  • Television

In addition, there may be charges for special services, which include items your physician orders for you, such as X-rays or laboratory tests.

If you have certain tests or treatments in the hospital, you may receive a bill from a doctor whom you did not see in person. These bills are for providers who diagnosed and interpreted test results while you were a patient. Pathologists, cardiologists, radiologists, anesthesiologists and other specialists who perform these services are required to submit separate bills.
