Participating Providers


HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital participates in most major insurance plans. We do recommend that you or a family member confirm that both your physician and the hospital are listed as participating providers with your insurance plan. Contact your insurance company directly to confirm coverage. The phone number is usually listed on the insurance card.
