Paying for Care

Health Plan Networks

BronxCare Health System is a participating provider in the networks of many health plans. Click here for a list of those health plans. Since some health plans use smaller networks for their benefit programs, it is important to check whether BronxCare is a participating provider for your specific benefit program. If a health plan does not appear on our listing, we do not participate with any of its benefit programs.

Physician Services

It is important for you to know that the physician services you receive in the hospital are not included in the hospital’s charges. Physicians providing services at the hospital may either be independent voluntary physicians or employed/contracted by the hospital. Physicians bill for their services separately and may not participate with the same benefit programs as the hospital. We encourage you to check with the physician providing your hospital services to determine the benefit programs with which they participate.

BronxCare Health System also contracts with a number of physician groups, such as neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, and radiologists, to provide services at the hospital. Contact information for those physician groups is available here. You should contact these groups directly to find out specific benefit programs with which they participate.

You should also check with the physician arranging for 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 can also tell you whether the services of any physicians employed or contracted by BronxCare Health System are likely to be needed, e.g., neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, and radiologists. Contact and benefit program participation information for employed physicians is available, and contact information for our contracted physician groups is also available here. You should contact these groups directly to determine the specific benefit programs with which they participate.
