Physician Office Billing
When your visit takes place in a physician office, you will usually be charged only for the physician’s examination, and your co-payment will usually be your only out-of-pocket cost.
We will request your co-payment when you check in for a visit.
Hospital Outpatient Billing
When your visit takes place in a hospital outpatient location, there will typically be two charges which may result in you paying more for your visit than if you are seen in a physician office. Your out-of-pocket costs could include the following:
- You will be charged for the physician’s examination, which will usually be covered by your co-payment.
- You will also be charged by the hospital for use of hospital space, equipment, and support staff. This is commonly known as a “Facility Fee.” Your health plan may apply these hospital charges to your annual deductible, and after using up your deductible, you may be responsible for a co-insurance payment.
