Hospital for Special Surgery is a participating provider in many health plan networks. View list of the insurance plans in which we participate. It is important to check whether we participate in the specific plan by which you are covered.
The physician services you receive in the hospital are not included in the hospital's charges. Your surgeon, medical doctors, and other specialists bill for their services separately and make their own decisions regarding participation in insurance plans and may or may not participate in the same plans as the hospital. Your anesthesiologist (excluding pain management), radiologist, and pathologist participate in most of the same plans as the hospital.

You should also check with the physician arranging for your hospital services to determine the health insurance plans in which he or she participates and whether the services of any other physicians will be required for your care. Your physician can provide you with the contact information of any physicians whose services may be needed.
