Facility Based Physicians Groups
FACILITY-BASED PHYSICIAN GROUPS
Professional services rendered by independent healthcare professionals are not part of the hospital and/or clinic bill. These services will be billed to the patient separately.
Please understand that physicians or other healthcare professionals may be called upon to provide care or services to you or on your behalf, but you may not actually see, or be examined by, all physicians or healthcare professionals participating in your care; for example, you may not see physicians providing radiology and pathology interpretation.
In many instances, there will be a separate charge for professional services rendered by physicians to you or on your behalf, and you will receive a bill for these professional services that is separate from the bill for hospital services. These independent healthcare professionals may not participate in your health plan and you may be responsible for payment of all or part of the fees for the services provided by these physicians who have provided out-of-network services, in addition to applicable amounts due for copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, and non-covered services.
We encourage you to contact your health plan to determine whether the independent healthcare professionals are participating with your health plan.
