An important message regarding insurance, billing and patient financial responsibility
We would like to let you know that the CHOP Care Network of New Jersey and the CHOP physicians who work here are in network with the health plans listed above. If your plan is not listed you will be considered out of network.
- NOT IN NETWORK: Your professional services will be provided on an out-of-network basis. You may have financial responsibility applicable to out-of-network services and may be responsible for costs in excess of your copayment, deductible and coinsurance and those allowed under your plan.
- You may request an estimate of the cost for your scheduled services. This estimate will include the professional fee for your CHOP Care Network providers, absent any unforeseen medical circumstances that may arise. We will provide this by CPT code. You may call 267-426-1467.
- You may be asked to sign a form selecting CHOP and CHOP physicians, knowing that CHOP and CHOP physicians are not in your health plan. This must be signed prior to the appointment.
- IN-NETWORK: You will not be expected to pay any professional fee amounts for Covered Services that are more than your in-network copayment, deductible and coinsurance amounts for covered professional services. If during the course of your visit services are provided that are not covered by your health plan you will be financially responsible for these services.
There is the possibility that other services may be performed during your scheduled procedure or visit with a CHOP Provider. It is also possible that your CHOP Provider may recommend, coordinate or refer you for other services in connection with services provided at the time of your visit to CHOP Care Network. These may include laboratory services or X-rays. We will try to refer this work to providers in your health plan network but this may not always be possible. Please check with your health plan to find in-network providers.
If your plan is self-funded or not a health benefits plan (for example auto, disability, workers compensation, long term care plan) certain services may be provided on an out-of-network basis. The billing limitations described in this letter may not apply and you may have financial responsibility more than allowed in your plan.
We encourage you to contact your health plan directly for more information about your plan, healthcare costs and providers who participate in your health plan.
We know that you have healthcare choices and we appreciate you choosing Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for your healthcare needs.
