Important Information about Paying for Your Care at Elizabethtown Community Hospital

Elizabethtown Community Hospital is a participating provider in many health plan networks. Some health plans use smaller networks for certain products they offer, so it is important to check whether we participate in the specific plan you are covered by. Our list will not tell you if we do not participate in all of a health plan's products. It is also important for you to know that some physician services you receive in the hospital are not included in the hospital's charges. Physicians who provide services at the hospital may be contracted physicians. 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. Elizabethtown Community Hospital contracts with a number of physician groups, such as radiologists and pathologists, to provide services at the hospital. Contact information for the physician groups the hospital has contracted with is available by calling (518) 873-6377 or can be found under “My Bill” at www.ech.org . You should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in.

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 contracted with Elizabethtown Community Hospital are likely to be needed, such as radiologists and pathologists. You should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in.

Hospitals are required by law to make available information about their standard charges for the items and services they provide. This information is available by contacting our Business Office at (518) 873-3139.

If you do not have health insurance, you may be eligible for assistance in paying your hospital bills. Information about financial assistance is available at Registration or by contacting our Business Office at (518) 873-3139.
