Mount Sinai Brooklyn (the “Hospital”) is a participating provider in many health plan networks. You can find a list of the plans in which we participate here. Some health plans use smaller networks for certain products they offer so it is important to check whether we participate in the specific plan you are covered by. Our list will tell you if we do not participate in all of a health plan’s products.
It is also important for you to know that the physician services you receive in the Hospital are not included in the Hospital’s charges. Physicians who provide services at the Hospital may be independent voluntary physicians, may be employed by the Hospital, may be employees of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, or may be contractors. Physicians bill for their services separately and may or may not participate in the same health plans as the Hospital. You should check with the physician arranging your hospital services to determine which plans that physician participates in.
Plan participation information for physicians employed by the Hospital or the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai can be found by using the pink “find a doctor” toolbar at www.mountsinaihealth.org to navigate to individual physicians’ profiles to view their “insurance” participation information. The Hospital also contracts with a number of physicians groups, such as anesthesiologists, neurologists, and gynecologists, to provide services at the hospital. Contact information for these physician groups is listed below, and you should contract these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in:
You should also check with the physician arranging for your hospital services to determine whether the services of any other physicians will be required for your care. Your physician can provide you with the name, practice name, mailing address and telephone number of any physicians whose services may be needed. Your physician will also be able to tell you whether the services of any physicians employed or contracted by the Hospital are likely to be needed, such as anesthesiologists, radiologists and pathologists. As noted above, contact information for these physicians is available at www.mountsinaihealth.org and as listed above. You should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in.
Hospitals are required by law to make available information about their standard charges for the items and services they provide. This information can be obtained by calling (212) 256-3177 or writing to the Hospital’s Patient Financial Services Department at 160 Water Street, 22nd Floor, New York, NY 10038.
