Medical bills can be confusing. We’re here to help.

People are often confused by their medical bills and how much their health insurance will cover. Northwell Health makes the process easier to understand and gives you a range of options for paying your bills. We understand that price transparency is especially important for uninsured patients and others who are paying for their medical care out-of-pocket, including those with high-deductible insurance plans. Since 2010, Northwell has been offering online services that help our patients get an estimate of their costs for medical services in advance, learn whether they are eligible for financial assistance or other publicly subsidized insurance, and set up convenient, affordable payment plans to pay their medical bills.

Frequently asked questions

How much will I owe?

The amount you owe depends on your insurance plan and coverage benefits. These differ greatly from plan to plan with respect to co-payments, co-insurance, and deductibles. If you have health insurance, please contact your insurance company directly to determine what your financial obligation will be. You may be asked to provide a procedure code, which can be obtained from your physician's office.

If you are uninsured, you may be eligible for our financial assistance program. Please call us at (800) 995-5727.
