|Finances and Insurance|
At the time of your admission, the Patient Account Representative verified your insurance and notified you of any services your insurance may not cover. The Kennedy Health System accepts all Affordable Care Act (ACA) Plans and a variety of other plans. You may click here and review a listing of the accepted insurance providers. Your Patient Account Representative is available to help you make any necessary arrangements regarding payment of your hospital bill as well as answer any questions regarding your insurance coverage.
If you think you may be eligible for public assistance, the New Jersey Hospital Assistance Program, or NJ Family Care, the Patient Account Representative will provide the information you need.
You will receive separate bills for services provided by doctors. This will include services from your doctors, any consulting doctors, your surgeon and anesthesiologist for surgical services, and for imaging studies that were interpreted by a radiologist. These fees are payable directly to the doctors issuing the bill.
The hospital will bill your insurance carrier directly if complete billing information has been received. If you are insured through a commercial carrier, you will receive monthly statements advising you of the status of your account. Accepted forms of payment are cash, check, money order, VISA/MasterCard and Discover Card.
Please call a Patient Account Representative at your campus prior to discharge if you have any questions or concerns regarding your bill, if you anticipate difficulty paying your bill, or if you require assistance and/or charity care.
For questions regarding your hospital bill, call Kennedy’s central billing office at 800-220-0280.
