Response at Emergency Room (ER) was little slow. But nurses and physician were good, respectful and helpful. Will recommend.
I went there for a procedure in 2017 with my in-network doctor. Got to the Hospital by 8 am and was out by 4 pm. Before procedure, I asked about insurance coverage and they told me not to worry, that they take care of everything with my insurance company. Now I received a $16,000 bill for me to pay, as they claim they were not in network by my insurance company.
That is totally outrageous. How am I supposed to pay that amount of money?
My in-network doctor did a procedure at this hospital which was apparently out of network - it was a planned procedure and I actually spoke to billing and ambulatory care and they mentioned that surgery costs would be covered by insurance. Now I am being saddled by monster surprise bills of out of service costs that were never divulged to me prior to the procedure.
My advice is run as far away from this facility as possible even if you have a great in network doctor. Look for another doctor because the hospital will find every way to extract whatever they can from you and if you are not completely sick, you will get very sick from the discussions with their billing etc. Even if they get a generous payout from your insurance, they will bill you a lot over and above. It is not worth the headache. I have dealt with other hospitals and never had to go through this weirdly inflated billing and negotiation.
My question is - do patients have no recourse in these situations? Can hospitals lie to you blatantly and get away with it? This is ridiculous.
s there anyone willing to take legal action against this hospital? I had an emergency visit that they billed my insurance an arm and leg for (for an IV) and insurance paid a substantial amount. They still keep billing me on top for services not even rendered and almost killing me. It's a ridiculous place that renders dreadful services and fake charges patients. I have had conversations with all of their departments and they have promised to resolve this but bills keep popping up from random places. This horrible institution needs to be shut down.
I was billed over $8700 for back spasms, after they told me that they accepted my insurance. I was there for hours with no explanation of where the doctor was. There were a lot of homeless people there given beds who had nothing wrong with them. The treatment was very temporary and my back pain returned just as bad as before within a day.
The staff of Labor and Delivery were absolutely amazing! From the attending physician to the nursing staff . Everyone was very supportive, empathetic and dynamic. We couldn't have chosen a better location for my wife to give birth. I cannot sing enough the praises of this facility . Thank you to the ENTIRE staff of Christ Hospital for making this such a pleasant experience!!!!!
