Health Insurance Accepted by the Hospital Itself
Westfield Memorial Hospital is a participating provider in many health plan networks. Some health plans use smaller networks for certain products they offer, so it’s important to check whether we participate in the specific plan under which you are covered. Our list will tell you if we do not participate in all of a health plan’s products.

Health Insurance Accepted by Doctors You See at the Hospital
Please know that the doctor services you receive in the hospital are not included in the hospital’s charges. Doctors bill for their services separately and may or may not participate in the same health plans as the hospital. You should check with the doctor arranging your hospital services to determine which plans the doctor participates in.
At times, doctors who provide services at the hospital are directly employed by the hospital. But we also contract with a number of doctor groups, such as anesthesiologists, radiologists and pathologists, to provide services at the hospital.
