    Insurance FAQ

    Even if you have good insurance, a hospital visit may yield a few financial surprises. Do you fully understand what your insurance policy covers? It's important to know what your plan entails before you have to use it. Please click on the links below to expand or collapse. The following questions are worth investigating:

    Do the Hospital's doctors participate in your plan?

    Hospitals contract with physician groups such as radiologists, anesthesiologists, and emergency department doctors to provide care inside the hospital. These doctors participate in most insurance plans, but not all. You should expect to receive a separate bill from these doctors if they provide services to you. The bill will ask for remittance of charges not covered by your insurance plan.

    What coverage can you expect for elective procedures?

    Before you arrive at the hospital for an elective procedure, you may want to ask the physician how much they will charge for the procedure. If you want to know how much you will have to pay the hospital you may contact the Patient Price Line at 703.558.5954 to get an estimate of what you may have to pay. Will you need ancillary services, such as surgical pathology if you are having surgery? Are certain services mandatory according to hospital policy? Does your physician anticipate that you will also need the services of a radiologist, anesthesiologist, or neonatologist?

    What about referrals once you're admitted?

    If the attending physician wants to refer you to a specialist, ask for one who is in your insurance plan. It may be impossible to accommodate your request, depending on physician availability, but it's worth it to ask. At the same time, question your insurance company about its policies regarding treatment from non-participating providers during hospitalization.

    Will your insurance cover a new baby?

    You need to add the baby to your insurance plan at birth. (Usually you have 30 days following the birth to add the baby, but it is best to do it at the time of the baby’s birth.) If you and your husband have different insurance plans, you need to call the primary insurance plan to determine to what plan the baby has to be added.

    Is it worth it to question a bill?

    When you receive an invoice, double check with your insurer, hospital, and physician regarding your payment obligation. Make sure you understand the basic benefits and deductibles specified in your insurance plan before you call.
