Why am I getting bills from physicians?

在某些情况下, particularly for specialists holding clinics in our outpatient area, you may receive a bill from the hospital and the physician. 当这种情况发生时, it is because national billing rules require that the physician not include the cost of overhead in the fee that he charges you, while they require that the hospital bill for this overhead.


Why is my ER bill so high?

Emergency Room visits are meant to provide urgent services with little or no notice. As such, the cost of staffing the Emergency Room is much higher than staffing a physician office. When a patient presents in the ER, hospital staff have to perform a thorough assessment of 病人, 即使你, 病人, feel that you know what the problem is. 例如, a patient presents to the hospital with a bad cough and tells the ER staff that they know they have bronchitis and just need something for the cough. 医院是合法的, ethical and moral obligation is to 1) verify that 病人 has bronchitis and 2) verify that there are no other conditions contributing to the cough. 因此, it is possible that the ER staff will order lab tests, radiology tests and maybe even an EKG, depending on the staff’s evaluation of 病人. Each of these add to the cost of the ER. 除了, 病人’s bill includes the hospital charges (for the ER room and all ancillary tests) and a charge for the physician, 护士, or physician assistant who provides the actual treatment. Another factor that will affect the amount ultimately billed to 病人 is 病人’s own insurance coverage. Today’s insurance policies often pay a smaller percentage of an ER visit if the company feels that 病人 could have waited and obtained care from a physician office. In the example of 病人 with bronchitis, it is possible that the insurance company would pay a lower percent and increase 病人’s responsibility.
