Understanding Your Hospital Bill

After a stay at Winchester Hospital, you will receive several bills. Your hospital bill includes costs for:

  • Maintenance
  • Meals
  • Professional nursing services
  • Your hospital room

Additional charges may include fees for procedures and supplies ordered by your doctor or services from other departments.

You also may get bills from other medical providers involved in your care, such as:

  • Anesthesiologists
  • Hospitalist doctors
  • Pathologists
  • Radiologists
  • Specialty doctors

Surprise / Balance Billing Protection  

When you get emergency care or are treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital, you are protected from balance billing (also called surprise billing). In these cases, you shouldn't be charged more than your plan's copayment, coinsurance and/or deductible amounts. 

You have rights and protections against surprise medical bills. To learn more, see our Balance/Surprise Billing Protection Notice.

Request a Good Faith Estimate  

Winchester Hospital is committed to price transparency as part of our mission to provide high-quality, affordable care while complying with federal laws requiring clear and helpful price information be made available to the public. 

In some cases, you can ask for a cost estimate of your health care services in advance. This gives you an idea of the cost of your bill. The estimate might include hospital fees, medication costs and medical tests. For more details, refer to our Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges Notice.
