If you have health insurance, not all of our hospitals or health centers may participate in your plan. You can find specific details about:

  • how to reach our financial counselors,
  • what health plans our hospitals and health centers participate in, and
  • what the cost is for many of our services.

Avoid Surprises. Reduce your chances of receiving an unexpected invoice for non-emergency health care. Get information about how to reach our financial counselors, what health plans we participate in and the costs for many of our services.

COVID-19 tests are available FREE at all NYC Health + Hospitals testing sites. Insurance is not required to receive a free COVID-19 test or an antibody test at any NYC Health + Hospitals location. If patients have insurance, we bill the insurer directly and never charge a co-pay or co-insurance.

The charges listed below reflect the standard charge amounts that the government requires us to publicly post and do not reflect costs to patients.

Visiting  Our Facility

Patients have the right to designate any visitors, including a spouse, domestic partner, a same sex domestic partner, another family member, or a friend to be their designated support person. The facility does not restrict, limit, or otherwise deny visitation privileges based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. Patients may withdraw or deny consent to visitation to anyone at any time.

Specialty and Hospital Care

  • A list of the medications you are taking
  • The name, address, and phone number of your pharmacy
  • Any medical records you wish to transfer from another doctor. Our clerk will help you transfer the information to our clinic.
