Important information about paying for your care at Roswell Park
Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center is a participating provider in many health plan networks. Some health plans use smaller networks for certain products they offer, so it is important to check whether we participate in your specific plan. Our list will tell you if we do not participate in all of a health plan’s products.
It is important for you to know 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 community physicians or may be employed by the hospital. Physicians bill separately for their services and may or may not participate in the same health plans as the hospital. You should check which plans the physician arranging your hospital services participates in. Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center contracts with a number of physician groups, such as anesthesiologists, neurologists, cardiologists, nephrologists, radiologists and pathologists, to provide services at the hospital. You should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in.
You should also check with the physician arranging 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 also can tell you whether the services of any physicians employed or contracted by Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center are likely to be needed, such as anesthesiologists, radiologists and pathologists. You should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans in which they participate.
Hospitals are required by law to make available information about their standard charges for the items and services they provide.
