When you see a doctor or other health care provider, you may owe certain out-of-pocket costs, such as a copayment, coinsurance, and/or a deductible. You may have other out-of-network costs or must pay the entire bill if you see a provider or visit a health care facility that isn’t in your health plan’s network.
It is your right to elect not to have Stamford Health bill your health insurance company per the HITECH ACT federal regulation and Stamford Health will not send a claim to your health insurance company. Should you choose this option, you may be asked to pay your bill in full. If you have questions regarding your hospital bill or want to provide the hospital with additional billing information, please call our Customer Service Department at 203.276.7572.
Stamford Hospital does not balance bill patients within the emergency setting per the No Surprises Act federal regulation.
