Patient Financial Services
From the desk of Deb Dente, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
At Bergen New Bridge Medical Center one of our key values is to maintain transparency of patient care and corporate achievement. In an effort to ensure we follow these values, we are moving forward with a more transparent approach to our pricing information by making sure our patients and their families have the most up-to-date information about the services and items we offer, and the prices associated with these services and items.
Our Chargemaster is a listing of all services and items for which we charge. We have provided the Chargemaster as a way for patients and families to gain insight into routine charges with the understanding that very rarely does a patient pay the actual “price” associated with a service or item. For our Medicare/Medicaid population, our fees are determined by rates set forth by the government. For our commercial payers, our fees are determined by a variety of methodologies which include per diem rates, case rates, carve-out pricing, and service discounts set forth within our contracts.
The Financial Statements are posted solely for the purpose of complying with the New Jersey Department of Health’s request for transparency of hospital financial conditions and performance and are not intended to be, nor should they be relied upon by any third party for any purpose without the express prior written acknowledgement of Bergen New Bridge Medical Center and Care Plus Bergen.
