Federal and state laws require physicians to bill separately for services they perform while you are a hospital patient. Therefore, you will receive several separate bills related to your hospital visit.
The hospital bill will include the costs for all hospital services. This bill may include charges for laboratory tests, use of equipment and supplies, your room, nursing care, dietary and other technical and support personnel. Charges at all Maryland hospitals are set and controlled by the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission. Fee schedules are available for review by contacting 410-535-8248.
The physicians' bills will include the professional fees from hospital-based physicians who provided a service as part of your tests or care while a patient. These services may include radiology, anesthesiology, emergency care, pathology, nuclear medicine, EKG, EEG, psychiatry, pulmonary medicine and other specialties.
