Your Hospital Bill and Insurance
At PIH Health Hospital-Downey, we are dedicated to making the billing process as easy as possible. We will send the bill to your insurance company. The insurance policy is a contract between you and the insurance company and you are responsible for the payment of your hospital bill. You will receive separate bills for physician services.
Any portion of your bill not paid by your insurance company or met by your initial deposit is due and payable from you immediately. If you cannot meet this responsibility, please call our business office. We have several payment options available to assist you in paying your hospital bill. To make payments, please have your account number handy when you call 855.472.4961. We accept checks, cash, and major credit cards as methods of payment for your out of pocket expense (deductible, co-payment or co-insurance).
