About our Pricing Commitment
We know that especially today, when so many people are uninsured or underinsured, it is important for individuals to have healthcare pricing information. We are committed to making this information available to consumers so they can better anticipate and understand their financial responsibilities and make informed healthcare decisions.
Because we know that healthcare is complex and that a general listing of prices for our common procedures will not meet everyone’s needs, we have developed a Pricing Specialist contact who consumers can contact directly for a prospective estimated service quote. Our goal in making this information easy to access is to remain a leader in healthcare initiatives aimed at better patient care.
What is Pricing Transparency?
“Pricing Transparency” is the term used to describe initiatives in the healthcare industry to provide meaningful pricing information to consumers. The healthcare industry is often complex and difficult for consumers to navigate. Price transparency is a means of providing consumers price information on common services. Our hospital is committed to presenting pricing information by contacting our Pricing Specialist.
Can I get an exact pricing quote?
Unfortunately, no. We will do our best to provide you with a pricing range based on our hospital’s historical pricing for comparable services. Price quotes are not guaranteed since the services used to compute the quote can vary from services you receive due to treatment decisions, unforeseen complications, additional tests or services ordered by your physician, and variation in the clinical needs of each patient.
