Personalized Estimates

Our patient access staff is available to help you understand your health insurance benefits and your share of the financial responsibility and give you an estimate for the cost of services we provide. So that estimates are as accurate as possible, please provide:

The hospital estimate will provide the following:

Estimates do not include any services related to complications that may occur during the procedure/services. Also, charges for physician fee such as a surgeon, pathologist, anesthesiologist or radiologist will not be included. These charges will be billed separately by the specific provider. Due to these factors, estimates are not exact and cannot be interpreted as a bill or exact costs for services.

About Hospital Charges

Hospital charges vary from facility to facility for many complex reasons including each hospital’s unique mix of services and payer relationships. The government requires hospitals to maintain a fee schedule, commonly known as the chargemaster, and to publish the chargemaster on their websites. These charges do not reflect what patients generally pay for the services they receive or represent what the hospital is actually paid in most circumstances. The chargemaster should not be used to estimate a patient’s actual cost of care or as a meaningful comparison about what hospitals are paid for their services.

We encourage all patients – regardless of insurance status – to contact us in order to obtain a cost estimate, information about our financial assistance programs, or a better understanding of their insurance coverage.
