The hospital called me today demanding that I pay them $2276 even though the claim has not been processed by United Health Care. I do not know what the dr is billing the insurance at all. The maximium out of pocket under my plan is $5700 I met $157 paid so far.

Stop right here and wait for your insurance to process this claim. At the very least, you will get a discounted rate and at the most, they will pay most or all of it.

Also...hospitals don't usually call demanding payment the day after medical care was provided because...they go through the insurance. You should refer them to your insurance company.
