The Jewish Hospital charges for inpatient hospitalization services on the basis of itemized charges. In certain cases, hospital-based physician fees may be billed separately by the physician group, for services such as emergency, radiology and pathology. Fees for other physician services will be billed separately. Questions regarding physician fees not billed by the hospital should be discussed with your physician.
Health Care Insurance
The hospital honors major third-party coverage such as Medicare, Medicaid, Workers Compensation and other public assistance. Your third-party coverage may require prior approval of your hospitalization. Failure to obtain prior approval may result in reduced benefits requiring additional uninsured or personal charges. The admitting office can assist you in obtaining prior approval for your hospitalization.
We accept commercial insurance and we participate in most managed care plans. Please provide Registration with all information necessary to bill your insurer, including your subscriber name, number and effective date.
Under Medicare law, health care services that can be paid for by Medicare are subject to review for compliance with medical standards. Review responsibilities for this hospital are conducted by Medco Peer Review at 513-421-6112. All information gathered for Peer Review purposes shall remain confidential. Any recommendations/decisions that may affect your hospitalization will be communicated to you by Medco Peer Review.
What if I don't have insurance?
If you do not have third-party coverage, your patient admissions counselor will advise you on ways of paying your bill. The Jewish Hospital helps needy patients apply for public assistance. Discounts are based on family size and income.
Financial counseling is available Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. If you would like a counselor to visit you, ask your nurse. For assistance after you are home, call 513-686-5041.

Healing comes in a variety of ways at Jewish Hospital. Beyond the hands of physicians, patients receive healing in the form of art, which is made possible by the hospital’s Holistic Healing Committee. The C.A.R.E. Channel and an artistry gift program, “Healing Through Art,” are two patient-focused initiatives at The Jewish Hospital.
To offer relief from commercial television, noise and other stressful distractions, the C.A.R.E. channel combines nature images and appropriate, uninterrupted music as an environmental tool to enhance and promote healing. The images are produced slowly to be effective for confined patients and to avoid being distracting or confusing for those on high levels of medication. Paced for time of day and night, the programming provides a peaceful starfield for overnight broadcast. The music selection is non-generational, non-regionally-biased and non-commercial and the programming is no additional charge to patients.
Another collaboration of healing and art brings Jewish Hospital and the community together to promote wellness. In a program designed to help patients heal, the hospital has contacted local artists to donate prints to those who are hospitalized. When the patient is ready to go home, he or she may take the piece, or it is displayed in the hospital.
For more information on The Jewish Hospital C.A.R.E. Channel, call 513-686-5422 or for Healing Through Art, call 513-686-4686.

Speak Up is a national campaign to encourage patients to help prevent health care errors. Patients can help prevent health care errors by learning about what can go wrong and what they can watch for when they are in the hospital.
Speak Up was developed by The Joint Commission, an organization that oversees hospitals and the quality of care they provide. The Jewish Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission and supports the Speak Up campaign.
