Understanding Your Child's Bill

Even if your insurance plan covers your visit to CHOP, you are still responsible for any cost-sharing expense, such as co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles. The amount will vary depending on your insurance and will be found in your child’s bill.

There are three bills you might receive for services provided by The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. These include a Hospital bill (green), a Physician bill (blue) and a Home Care bill (white). Learn more about each of these bills:

Hospital bill

hospital billThis bill covers charges for hospital services. This will include but is not limited to: procedures; overnight stays; supplies and equipment; and technical services, such as lab tests and radiology studies. This also includes charges for services provided by non-physician clinical staff. This will include but is not limited to: audiologists; dietitians; and physical, occupational and speech therapists. If your child received any such service, even if it was during a visit with a specialist at a Specialty Care Center or at the Wood Center, you will receive a Hospital bill. This explains why you might receive a Hospital bill without ever coming to the main Hospital building at 34th Street and Civic Center Blvd. in Philadelphia.
