How long can a hospital bill take to arrive?
 
Hi All,

I had 3 appointments at UniSpital within the past month and I have not received any bill yet. The visits included various studies such as blood, urine, and ultrasound, so I'm expecting a somewhat high bill.

When I go to my doctor I normally get the bill quite quickly, which I appreciate as I don't like having "open bills" (I have a high franchise, so bills are paid from my pocket).

Do you know how long a hospital bill takes to arrive?

Thank you!

Months, even years.

It varies. Iíve waited 3 months or more, and on other occasions the bill comes at the end of the month.

Is your treatment (or investigation) complete? If not they might be waiting for the end of it before sending the bill.

I've had a bill the next day, and others 6 months later, though usually they arrive within a fortnight. I'm still waiting for one for a blood test about 7 years ago, but I guess they may have forgotten that one.

Probably once the treatment is deeme dfinished, they don't like issuing 10 bills for the same patient salami style, just one bill at the end.
