Paying Your Bill

After receiving treatment at Children's National Hospital, your family will receive bills for hospital (laboratory, X-ray, medication, etc.) and professional (physician) charges (this is called the black statement). As a result, you will receive one bill for each date of service as of October 1, 2020. For more information, including advice on how to obtain a cost estimate for your child's care, please review our FAQs.

If you feel like a discrepancy has occurred on any of your bills, please contact Customer Service as soon as possible to prevent a delay in processing your claims. Our Customer Service Department is available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST at 301-572-3542, toll free at 800-787-0021 or by email.

For Services On or After October 1, 2020

For Services Before October 1, 2020

Our previous computer systems kept hospital and physician charges separate, and as a result you will receive two bills for each date of service that occurred prior to October 1, 2020. The physician bill/statement ("purple statement") is cumulative for all services. The hospital bill ("blue statement") is a separate account for each service.
