The cost of your stay at Norwalk Hospital depends on many things, such as why you’re here and what care you need. Insurance also plays a major role in reducing what the actual cost your stay will be to you.
If You Have Insurance
We will request a copy of your identification card. We may also need the insurance forms that are supplied by your employer or the insurance company. You will be asked to assign benefits from the insurance company directly to the hospital.
You should familiarize yourself with the terms of your insurance coverage. It will help you understand the Hospital’s billing procedures and charges.
If You Are a Member of an HMO or PPO
Your plan may have special requirements, such as a second surgical opinion or pre-certification for certain tests or procedures.
It is your responsibility to make sure the requirements of your plan have been met. We recommend that you work closely with your referring physician to insure that pre-certification is obtained as necessary for all scheduled services.
If your plan’s requirements are not followed, you may be financially responsible for all or part of the services rendered in the Hospital. Some doctor specialists may not participate in your healthcare plan, and their services may not be covered.
If You are Covered by Medicaid
We will need a copy of your Medicaid card. Medicaid also has payment limitations on a number of services and items.
