Many insurance companies require a second opinion, pre-authorization, pre-certification or all of these. Please check your health insurance policy or contact your insurance company about their special requirements. If you do not meet these requirements, the insurance company may refuse to pay or may pay a reduced amount for your visit. In that case, you would be responsible for payment of all bills not covered by your insurance. It is your responsibility to contact your health insurance carrier regarding its policy concerning authorization and second opinions. Please bring your insurance cards with you on the day of your appointment.
If you are not covered by insurance, we have Financial Counselors available who can assist in pursuing payment options.
At the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center and Rubenstein Child Health Building, there are generally two bills that you or your insurance company will receive. One bill covers fees for the doctor’s services, and one bill covers facility, equipment, and staff service charges.
At Green Spring Station, Howard County and Sibley Memorial Hospital, a global fee is charged.
