Understanding Healthcare Prices: A Consumer Guide

About our price listing
The prices listed on the charge master frequently do not provide an accurate representation of what a patient will find on their bill. The prices in the charge master do not reflect insurance discounts or uninsured discounts. Additionally, surgery pricing is based on how much time a patient spends in the operating room, recovery room, and any other services that might be required such as labs, drugs, and radiology. To get a more accurate estimate, we recommend that patients contact a financial counselor to receive a customized estimate of potential charges. The customized estimate will include a list of charges for the services generally performed for specific procedures, tests, or surgeries and will also apply insurance and uninsured discounts.
Disclaimer: While we make every effort to ensure accuracy of our quotes, medical care and diagnostic testing can change at the time of service. This estimate is based on the average cost of these services. Since each person's health needs vary, the price given is only an estimate and will depend on the individual's specific situation. All professional charges (i.e., radiologists; anesthesiologists; and pathologists) are billed separately and are not included in this estimate.
