Cayuga Medical Center is a participating provider in many health plan networks. Some health plans use smaller networks for certain products they offer, so it’s important to check whether we participate in the specific plan you are covered by. Our list will tell you if we do not participate in all of a health plan’s products.
It is also important for you to know that the physician services you receive in the hospital are not included in the hospital’s charges. Physicians who provide services at the hospital may be independent voluntary physicians, or they may be employed by the hospital. Physicians bill for their services separately and may, or may not, participate in the same health plans as the hospital. You should check with the physician arranging your hospital services to determine which plans that physician participates in. Cayuga Medical Center contracts with a number of physician groups, such as anesthesiologists, radiologists, and pathologists, to provide services at the hospital.
You should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in. 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 will also be able to tell you whether the services of any physicians employed, or contracted, by Cayuga Medical Center are likely to be needed, such as anesthesiologist, hospitalists, intensivists, radiologists, and pathologists. You should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in.
Hospitals are required by law to make available information about their standard charges for the items and services they provide. This information ls available by contacting Cayuga Medical Center Business Office at 607-274-4400.
