Paying for care: no surprise bill
Research shows many consumers are confused about how health care costs work and often have concerns regarding their out-of-pocket costs. At Peconic Bay Medical Center, we’re here to provide clarity and help you understand what to expect regarding your cost of care and any potential financial responsibility you may have.
If you receive health care or emergency services from an in-network doctor or hospital, you may unknowingly receive care from an out-of-network provider during that time and incur unanticipated expenses—called a surprise bill. Usually, the out-of-network provider sends a bill to your insurance company, which pays a portion of the bill. The remainder of the bill is then sent to you. To ensure a provider is in-network, check directly with your health insurance carrier.
