Questions About Billing
Often our patients are concerned about payment arrangements for emergency department services. Most health insurance companies partially cover the cost of emergency treatment, and we will submit a claim to your insurer when we have your billing information.
Many insurance companies charge a co-pay fee for services. You might receive bills at a later date for the doctor's services or any medications or diagnostic tests you receive in the emergency department. Insurance coverage differs from company to company and person to person, so please check with your insurer.
If you do not have medical insurance or have coverage for only part of your expenses, you might be eligible for financial assistance. Please ask our registration department for assistance, visit Lifespan's customer service site for details, or call a specialist at Newport Hospital at 401-845-1717 or 401-845-1706.
Newport Hospital--including the emergency department--treats everyone who requires care, regardless of their ability to pay.
