Hospitalists are physicians who devote their practice to the care of hospitalized patients. They treat hospitalized patients who have been referred by primary care physicians, emergency room physicians or other physicians at the hospital. Hospitalists are based in the hospital and will manage and coordinate all aspects of your hospital stay at Deaconess Hospital, from admission until discharge. Hospitalists will work closely with your primary care physician and any consulting physicians involved in your care.
When you are hospitalized, you will receive at least two sets of bills:
one for hospital services, and other(s) for each doctor providing care.
So, yes, you will receive a bill from the hospitalist, as well as from any
other treating physicians. The bill you receive will be an itemized
accounting of the services provided to you by the hospitalist during your
hospitalization. With this statement, you’ll be able to review the services
provided and verify your billing and insurance information.
