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.
Financial Assistance Program
East Liverpool Health System understands that paying for emergency or other medically necessary medical care can be difficult, particularly for patients who lack health insurance. As part of our commitment to our patients, the hospital provides financial assistance to patients who are indigent and satisfy certain requirements. Our Financial Counselors work hard to help our patients address their financial responsibilities in a way that is fair and sensitive to their circumstances and they are here to help you find financial solutions that can help cover your cost of care.
The East Liverpool Health System Financial Assistance Policy applies to uninsured or underinsured patients who come to our facilities for emergency or other medically necessary treatment. This policy provides financial relief to patients who qualify based on a comparison of their financial resources and/or income to Federal Poverty Level guidelines. To qualify for assistance, patients will be asked to complete a Financial Assistance Application. If you have questions regarding our policy or applications, please call 330-386-2924 or click below for more information:
Many insurance carriers require pre-authorization for hospital admission, tests and procedures other than those deemed emergencies. If you were admitted on an emergency basis or for some other reason did not obtain pre-authorization, call your insurance carrier immediately. Failure to obtain necessary pre-authorization may result in you personally being billed for charges disallowed by your insurance carrier.
