One of Nuvance Health’s vendors recently experienced a cybersecurity issue. Upon learning this, we immediately disconnected from its services. The incident is causing delays to our claims processing and patient billing. Among other delays, you may receive an invoice for your cost-sharing amount later than usual.   

Your insurance provider may be able to give you more up-to-date information than what is currently showing in your Nuvance Health account. In addition, please know that Nuvance Health will never ask you for credit card information over the phone regarding payment refunds. We will keep this webpage updated as more information about the situation becomes available.

How to pay your bill

You may know Nuvance Health® hospitals and medical practice as Western Connecticut Health Network or Health Quest. We’re now Nuvance Health. Our systems are still being integrated. Be sure to choose the correct link below when paying your bill.

Insurances we accept

It is good practice to contact the doctor's office and your insurance company directly to confirm acceptance of your insurance plan prior to your visit.


Patient financial assistance policy

About your hospital bill

Whenever possible, the hospital will bill your insurance company directly, provided your benefits have been verified and you have completed the necessary forms assigning benefits to the hospital. At the time of admission, you will have the opportunity to review your insurance coverage. Insurance benefits will depend on your policy and remaining deductible. Any amounts not covered by insurance are the responsibility of the guarantor or responsible party.


You may receive additional bills from doctors on the medical staff who helped with your care while you were a patient at a Nuvance Health hospital. Should you have any questions concerning their bill, please contact their office directly.



Billing and collection practices

Nuvance Health hospitals require you to pay or have proof of the ability to pay at or before the time of service. Our hospitals will not deny necessary care because of a lack of financial information or financial resources. Until financial resources are properly identified, the hospital may reschedule elective care.
