Hospital-Based or Provider-Based Outpatient Billing

Hospital-Based or Provider-Based Outpatient Billing

Receiving care at St. Luke's University Health Network's "Provider-Based" locations may result in a facility charge as well as a professional or physician charge for outpatient services and/or procedures. These charges will be reflected on the patient statements that you will receive for services provided (from the facility as well as the professional providing service).

Depending on a patient's specific insurance coverage, it is possible that some patients may pay more for these services and procedures than they would at a free-standing facility which provides global billing (all facility and professional fees on the same statement). This ultimately depends on charges assessed and type of insurance coverage involved. St. Luke's University Health Network is not unique in this regard, as this is the case in many integrated health care delivery systems. Patients are advised to review their insurance benefits or contact their insurance provider to determine what their policy will cover and identify any out-of-pocket expenses.
