Jefferson Health New Jersey Hospital Billing & Insurance Information
Jefferson Health New Jersey is dedicated to providing consumers with as much information as possible regarding potential health care costs. Accordingly, we have listed information on the insurers and products the hospital participates in, as well as any exceptions.
This list may not be comprehensive. For example, specialty insurers such as Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury Protection (“PIP”) are not included because there are a number of different types of insurance products and we may not participate in all of them. If you do not see your plan listed on our website, we strongly recommend that you contact us or your health insurance plan to confirm whether your plan is in-network or out-of-network.

A Financial Counselor is available to help you make any necessary arrangements regarding payment of your hospital bill as well as answer any questions regarding your insurance coverage.
If you think you may be eligible for public assistance, the New Jersey Hospital Assistance Program, or NJ Family Care, the Financial Counselor will provide the information you need.
You will receive separate bills for services provided by doctors. This will include services from your doctors, any consulting doctors, your surgeon and anesthesiologist for surgical services, and for imaging studies that were interpreted by a radiologist. These fees are payable directly to the doctors issuing the bill.
The hospital will bill your insurance carrier directly if complete billing information has been provided by you.
