Billing FAQs

Can I pay my balance off in a payment plan?

Some patients are unable to pay balances in full and need extended time to pay for services. Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital (SBELIH) offers short-term financing options to assist in these situations. All patients qualify by agreeing to accept the terms of the SBELIH payment program. Please contact the Extended Business Office at (631) 686-4377 to establish a payment arrangement.

Note: Sending a partial payment does not establish a formal payment plan.

Can I pay the Hospital Portion of my bill online?

You will receive separate bills for Technical and Professional services rendered at SBELIH.
