It is also important for you to know that the physician services you receive in the hospital are not included in the hospital’s charges. Physicians who provide services at the hospital may be independent voluntary physicians or they may be employed by the hospital. Some of these physicians bill for their services separately and may or may not participate in the same health plans as the hospital. You should check with the physician arranging your hospital services to determine which plans that physician participates in. All Lourdes employed physicians participate in the plans listed. You can find a list of Lourdes Employed Physicians on our web site.
You should also check with the physician arranging for your hospital services to determine whether the services of any other physicians will be required for your care. Your physician can provide you with the name, practice name, mailing address and telephone number of any physicians whose services may be needed. Your physician will also be able to tell you whether the services of any physicians employed or contracted by Lourdes are likely to be needed, such as anesthesiologists, radiologists and pathologists. You should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in.
