Insurance & Billing

Paying for Your Medical Care

Office Visits With Your Doctor or Other Healthcare Provider

We accept most health care insurance plans in the greater New York City area, though participation varies by doctor. To see the plans your doctor accepts, click Search All Healthcare Providers above and search for your doctor by name. Please be sure to confirm that your plan is accepted directly with your doctor’s office, and ask about possible payment arrangements if your plan is not accepted.

Outpatient Tests and Procedures

ColumbiaDoctors provides some medical services in cooperation with NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP), our hospital partner. Examples include certain diagnostic tests, procedures, lab tests, and radiology services. These services may result in a bill from NYP. For information on the insurance plans accepted by NYP, please click here. Please contact your doctor’s office with any questions about how a service or test will be billed.

Hospital Stays

In addition to charges from NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) for a hospital stay, you may be billed separately for any services provided by a physician or other health care provider. NYP and our physicians may not accept the same insurance plans. Before entering the hospital, your doctor’s office will tell you which doctors are expected to provide services during your stay.

  • For information on plans accepted by our physicians, look up the doctor by name by clicking Search All Healthcare Providers above.
  • For information on paying for care with our hospital partner, NYP, please click here. If you will be treated at another hospital, check with that hospital or your doctor’s office.

Additional Services

In both office and hospital settings, our doctors coordinate with our anesthesiologists, pathologists, and radiologists to provide care for our patients. If you have questions about how these services may be billed, please contact your doctor’s office. Below is the phone number and mailing address for these groups, along with the insurance plans that they generally accept.
