Health Care Costs
Thank you for choosing St. James Hospital for your care today. In an effort to be as transparent as possible, we want to bring to your attention the potential for fees you may encounter from physicians and physician groups that bill separately from the hospital.
- You may receive a bill for your hospital stay, as well as an additional bill from physician(s) or physician groups. You would likely see the additional bill if you required any of the following services during your stay at St. James: anesthesiology, pathology, radiology, emergency room treatment, and hospitalist (inpatient & observation) consultation and treatment.
- Physicians and physician groups may or may not participate in the same health plans as the hospital. Check with your primary care physician before making arrangements for elective and other non-emergent hospital visits to determine the health care plans in which your care team participates.
- In some cases, St. James Mercy Hospital performs the billing for the professional services. For a complete list of those providers and the health plans we participate with, go to NYS Surprise Bill or one can be made available to you at our registration/billing areas.
You may contact our billing supervisor for an estimate cost of services or procedures provided by St. James Hospital or by our providers at (607) 385-3950.
