How does the hospital know where to send my bill if they all have is my SSN?

Recently I went to the hospital for a drug overdose (please no judgment, what I took was cut). I didn’t have my wallet on me so they asked me for my SSN to identify me. I was pretty out of it and didn’t think to tell them no or give my address, I barely remember giving them the SSN.

Are they going to find my insurance through my SSN and then bill me through the address my insurance has on file (my address) OR are they going to just directly bill the permanent address associated with my license/passport (my parents address, I don’t want the bill going there). Is there even an address associated with my SSN? I’m clueless about these things so any help is appreciated.
