How long it takes you to receive a bill from the hospital depends on the type of insurance you have. In general, most hospitals will send you a bill after the insurance company has either paid the bill or denied it. Sometimes the delay comes because your insurance company has not responded to the request for payment from the hospital or doctor’s office. When this occurs, you may be asked to contact the insurance company to ask them to review the request.
