Patients are responsible for deductibles, co-payments and any unpaid portion of the bill. It is the policy of New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai to receive payment at the time of service. Patients scheduled for surgery will be required to pay for services in advance unless they are fully covered by a commercial insurance carrier, Blue Cross, Medicaid or Medicare.
Patients must pay in advance for any portion of the fee not covered by insurance. Medicare pays 80% of the fee, and there is a deductible. The hospital will accept cash, certified checks, MasterCard, VISA, American Express or Discover Card as payment for hospital services.
Your surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist and pathologist will each bill you separately as their services are not included in hospital charges.
Please call the Financial Screening Office at (212) 979-4311 or 4309 for verification or questions regarding your insurance coverage.
