Out-of-Network Law and Important Information about Paying for Your Care at South Nassau Communities Hospital, or click here for Spanish.

South Nassau Communities Hospital is a participating provider in many health plan networks. You can find a list of the plans we participate in here. Some health plans use smaller networks for certain products they offer, so it is important to check whether we participate in the specific plan you are covered by. Our list will tell you if we do not participate in all of a health plan’s products.

It is also important for you to know that the physician services you receive in the hospital are not included in the hospital’s charges. Physicians who provide services at the hospital may be independent voluntary physicians or they may be employed by the hospital. Physicians bill for their services separately and may or may not participate in the same health plans as the hospital. You should check with the physician arranging your hospital services to determine which plans that physician participates in.

South Nassau Communities Hospital contracts with a number of physician groups such as anesthesiologists, radiologists, orthopedists, and emergency physicians, to provide services at the hospital. Contact information for the physician groups the hospital has contracted with is available here, or you should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in.

The names, mailing address and phone number of physicians employed by the hospital whose services may be provided at the hospital can be found here.

Plan participation information for South Nassau Neonatology can be found here.

Plan participation information for all other physicians employed by the hospital can be found here.

You should also check with the physician arranging for your hospital services to determine whether the services of any other physicians will be required for your care. Your physician can provide you with the name, practice name, mailing address and telephone number of any physicians whose services may be needed. Your physician will also be able to tell you whether the services of any physicians employed or contracted by South Nassau Communities Hospital are likely to be needed, such as anesthesiologists, radiologists and pathologists. Contact information for these physicians is available here, or you should contact these groups directly to find out which health plans they participate in.

Hospitals are required by law to make available information about their standard charges for the items and services they provide. Information is available by contacting (516) 632‐3093, South Nassau Access Department at One Healthy Way, Oceanside, New York 11572, weekdays, 9 a.m.‐ 5 p.m.
