Your Hospital Bill

Your hospital bill will show three kinds of charges:

  1. The daily care charge represents a portion of the costs for the day-to-day operation of the hospital. It includes 24-hour nursing care, food, linen service, and other supportive functions. The daily care charge will be apportioned between you and your insurance carrier, if applicable.

    Payment for private duty nursing is arranged through the Private Duty Nursing Office and billed separately.

  2. Optional personal charges include special food orders and the private room differential, if applicable. Optional personal charges are not covered by insurance.

  3. Patient Financial Counselors and Financial Assistance

    Patient Financial Counselors are available to discuss any outstanding financial responsibilities not covered by insurance. Financial Counselors can assist you in applying for Government sponsored programs or NYU Hospitals Center's Financial Assistance program.
