Johns Hopkins Bayview’s Division of Cardiology accepts a variety of health insurance plans. Prior to your visit, it’s important to check with your primary care physician or insurance company to see if your testing is covered or if you need to obtain a referral for a specialist visit or diagnostic procedure.
If you are a self-pay patient without insurance, please be aware that some diagnostic procedures require a deposit. For details, call financial counseling at 410-550-3505.
Payment of co-pay and deductible are required at the time of your appointment check-in.
If you cannot find the information you need, call the cardiac scheduling department at Johns Hopkins Bayview at 443-997-0274.
If you need refills for your prescriptions, please let your doctor know before you arrive for your appointment so your medication will be ready for you when you arrive. If you run out of your medication before your appointment, call your physician’s office or call 410-550-4642.
