Information about Charges

We are committed to providing you with as much information as possible so you can make informed decisions about your care. In order to obtain the most accurate estimate of your out-of-pocket costs please contact your insurance provider. Your out-of-pocket costs may depend on several factors including your insurance provider, your specific health benefits policy, expenses such as your deductible, co-insurance, co-payment and the limit of out-of-pocket expense requirements, as well as the services or procedures you receive and those which may not be covered. 

Hospitals are required by law to maintain and make available a list of prices for every service and procedure they offer. These standard prices do not reflect or represent the actual payment the hospital will receive for those services, nor do they represent your out-of-pocket costs. However, patients are entitled by law to request and receive this list of standard prices, and may do so by calling 914-709-3069.

For services provided at Montefiore, you will receive separate bills for Professional charges from providers such as anesthesiologists, pathologists, oncologists or other specialists who have contributed to your care. You will also receive a separate bill for hospital charges. These charges include the cost of providing all other aspects of your care which are billed separately from professional services such as room and board, support staff, supplies, and medications. You may also receive separate bills from a doctor who is affiliated with Montefiore but also has a private practice.

A list of participating insurance plans is provided for you here. Please note that some providers who may be involved in your care may not participate in the same insurance plans as Montefiore, therefore please check with the physician arranging for the hospital services to determine the health care plans in which the physician participates. A list of physicians who provide services at Montefiore facilities is available for you here.
