Insurance & Financial Info

The hospital Business Office will bill your insurance carrier for charges relating to your hospital stay. You or family members need to provide our registration clerks with your insurance information upon admission.

Should you have any questions as to whether East Liverpool City Hospital takes your insurance, please contact us.

Charges

Your hospital stay could result in multiple charges and statements from various billing sources. A hospital bill is an itemized statement of charges for room and board, medications, treatments and services rendered; for example, emergency services, therapy, X-rays, blood tests and EKG testing.

Physician fees are billed separately from hospital services. In addition to a bill from your admitting physician, physicians may charge fees for anesthesiology, radiology, pathology, emergency services and specialty consultation.
