If you are unable to pay, please alert your physician ahead of time so that a payment plan may be discussed. If you have questions regarding your bill, please call us at (410) 242-4095.
Please note you may be receiving a bill from both your physician for his services (professional fee) as well as GIDC for the procedure itself (facility fee).
The Cost of Your Procedure
Because you are responsible for costs for covered healthcare services until you reach your deductible, you should comparison shop if you elect to have a nonemergency procedure.
You can use tools like Healthcare Bluebook and the Medicare Procedure Price Lookup (for Medicare patients). Many health insurance websites also provide information on where to find in-network services.
Planning a Procedure on a HDHP
A High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is a plan with a higher deductible than a traditional health insurance plan.
Managing Healthcare Cost
A High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) can be a wise way to save money on health insurance and take a proactive role in your healthcare.
Understanding Your Insurance
Health insurance is an agreement between you and an insurance company of your choosing.
