NEBH is 100% committed to providing our patients with the best possible experience before, during and after their surgery. Because we are a specialty organization focused solely on musculoskeletal and orthopedic care, we have been able to develop protocols and efficiencies that improve quality and safety while containing costs.
NEBH is committed to being fully transparent when it comes to the cost of treatment. We are committed to providing an estimated cost for your hospitalization within two business days of receiving a request. Cost estimates are based on the average payment received from insurance companies. This would be the fully discounted rate and does not include out-of-pocket payments or deductibles.
It is important to note that we are not always able to predict precisely what supportive services you will need if any during your stay. For example, you may require a visit from a cardiologist or other physician while you are an inpatient. As a result these additional physician services will not be included in your estimate.
In addition to the bill you receive for hospital services, you can also expect to receive a separate bill from each of your physicians. At a minimum you can expect to receive a bill from your surgeon, anesthesiologist and radiologist. Please check with your doctor’s office directly for a cost-estimate for his or her services.
It is the responsibility of each patient to know what insurance coverage they have and understand how much they are required to pay. Ask your insurance company about co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles. See if your doctor and NEBH are in-network or out-of-network.
The more information you can provide when you request an estimated cost the more accurate your estimate will be. Please provide us with the following:
- Insurance information – Type of insurance, group number, name of insured etc.
- Doctor performing your procedure
- Any procedure codes provided by your doctor
- Date of procedure
