Independent Physician Groups Bills you receive from Meriter Hospital are for hospital services only. Physicians bill separately for their services. For example, if your treatment required the services of a radiologist (for reading x-rays or scans), a pathologist (for lab or specimen readings), an emergency room physician, an anesthesiologist or any other physician, you will receive a separate bill from their office. You are entitled to receive cost information from these independent physician groups by calling them directly.
If you have any billing questions not answered here, Meriter Hospital's Customer Service representatives are available to answer your questions.
