Paying for Wood County Hospital Services

Most insurance plans cover a portion of your hospital bill. You will be billed for the hospital charges not covered by your insurance plan.

As a courtesy, Wood County Hospital will file a claim with your insurance company based upon the information you provide. Many insurance plans require pre-authorization for your hospital stay. It is the responsibility of you, the patient, and your physician to receive this authorization prior to planned admissions.

Any financial concerns, questions, or special needs may be discussed with a financial counselor between the hours of 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday through Friday. Our Financial Counselor may be reached at (419) 373-7611. Billing questions can be addressed by a Patient Accounts Representative at  (419) 354-8972.

Your bill will only include charges for all hospital services you received while at Wood County Hospital. It does not include professional fees for your physician, radiologist, anesthesiologist, pathologist, or other specialists. You will receive a separate bill from these individuals for their services.
