Your Hospital Bill

Hospital bills are based on the cost of salaries, supplies, equipment and other expenses needed to serve our patients.

The daily room charge includes maintenance, housekeeping, linens, routine nursing services, medical records and other general care-related services. Additional charges are made for special tests or drugs ordered by your physician, and for operating, recovery and delivery rooms.

Your Doctors’ Bills

Fees from your personal physician and specialists will not appear on your Jackson Memorial Hospital bill. You will receive separate bills from these specialists, such as anesthetists, surgeons, pathologists and radiologists.

Please treat the bills of these specialists like those of your own physician. Be sure to contact your insurance carrier or third party payor and complete all necessary claim forms.

If you have questions about these separate charges, please call the number on your bill.

Financial Counseling

Jackson Memorial Hospital is aware that medical costs often occur when families least expect or can afford them. If you can’t make a payment or are having financial problems, a financial representative will work with you to try to help you.

Patient Financial Services is located in the Ambulatory Care Center West, room 127. For assistance, or to receive a financial assessment, please call 305-585-6000.
