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 at 330-386-2057.
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.
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.
Your payments for charges not covered by insurance, Medicaid or Medicare may be paid at the cashier’s desk on the first floor between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 on Friday. You may also mail payments to:
