Accreditation and Licensure
Hospitals that achieve accreditation and licensure are required to submit to formalized, comprehensive evaluations by on-site surveyors who assess compliance with health, quality and safety standards and regulations. These surveys are conducted regularly and involve participation from the entire hospital organization.
As a patient at Hoag Hospital, you have certain rights and responsibilities that are inherent in your health care. To receive the best possible care, it is important that you play an active role in your medical treatment. It is the responsibility of your health care team to include you in that process.
We bill Medicare and your secondary insurance following receipt of Medicare's payment. Once your secondary insurance has been billed, you will receive periodic statements advising you of the balance due. GoldenHealth PLUS patients should not receive billing statements for hospital in-patient charges, other than services not covered by Medicare Part A. You will receive bills for physicians, hospital out-patient and Medicare Part B services.
By participating in nearly every major health insurance plan and network, Hoag makes it easy to afford the finest medical treatment available. Your insurance company may be affiliated with one of the plans. If you have questions about your health insurance, please call our Insurance Information Service at 800-400-HOAG (4624) or e-mail Insurance@hoaghospital.org.
