EOB stands for Explanation of Benefits. It is not a bill; it is a document provided to you by your insurance carrier that simply explains your insurance coverage by listing the various tests, procedures, and other services that you received.
During your hospital visit, the hospital and other healthcare providers were involved with your care. You may have had a variety of tests, procedures, and other services. Your bill reflects all of the services you received during your stay including room and board, nursing care, and other services. You may also have had certain tests or treatments and may receive a bill from doctors or healthcare providers you did not see in person, but who participated in diagnosing and interpreting your test results while you were a patient in the hospital. May of these services are performed by healthcare providers who work in the hospital, but are not employees of the hospital. They will bill for their services separately.
