Does Catholic Health Participate in Your Health Plan?
Catholic Health participates in many health plan networks. You can find a list of the plans in which we participate in below.
Some health plans use smaller networks for certain products, so it is important to check whether we participate in your specific plan. Our list will tell you if we do not participate in all of a health plan’s products.
Hospital Charges: Hospitals are required by law to share their standard charges for the items and services they provide. Learn how to request pricing.
Does Your Doctor Participate in Your Health Plan?
The services that you receive by a doctor in the hospital are not included in the hospital charges. Doctors bill for their services separately.
Doctors who provide services at the hospital may be independent physicians or they may be employed by the hospital. They may or may not participate in the same health plans as the hospital.
To make sure that your care is covered by your health plan, please contact the following persons:
- The doctor who is arranging your hospital services: Ask which plans that he or she participates in.
- Other doctors who provide care: Ask the doctor who is arranging your hospital services if any other doctors will be needed for your care. Ask for contact information for these doctors, including the doctor's name, practice name, mailing address, and telephone number.
- Physician groups that Catholic Health contracts with: These physician groups include anesthesiologists, radiologists, and pathologists. You will want to make sure that their services are covered under your plan.
