At Temple University Hospital – Northeastern Campus, we know that dealing with billing and insurance information can be confusing. Our goal is to make it easy for you to understand our policies and procedures.
Billing & Insurance
Most insurance plans require pre-approval for medical and surgical procedures. Prior to your planned treatment at Temple University Hospital – Northeastern Campus, your physician must contact your insurance company to explain your medical condition and outline the proposed treatment and care plan. Your insurance carrier will then review this information and determine whether to approve and pay for the services recommended by your physician. Please note that pre-approval does not guarantee payment. Services not paid by insurance will be your responsibility.
