Health care facilities do not have a single rate sheet you can consult. Bills from a hospital or doctor can come from many different providers: your surgeon, anesthesiologist, pathologist, labs, and the hospital.
Reviewing your bill is vital. Even when you have insurance, overcharges will come out of your pocket. You will receive a EOB (Explanation of benefits) from your insurance company. It will say, “This is not a bill.” This statement will tell you how much your insurance plan will cover and what you are responsible for. Your bill will follow in separate statements. Find out approximately what you should expect to pay by selecting the appropriate category.
