ONLINE DISCLAIMER

The hospital's charges are the same for all patients, but a patient's responsibility may vary, depending on the discounts negotiated with individual health insurers. These price lists do not include these discounts.  If you have health insurance, you should contact your insurance company directly to understand what your financial obligation will be.  Uninsured or underinsured patients should consult with our Patient Account Services staff to determine whether they qualify for discounts.

Also, the price lists do not include physicians' fees from emergency physicians, emergency transport, surgeons, anesthesia providers, radiologists, pathologists or other professional fees.  Your physician's office will bill you separately for services and should be able to give you pricing information if you call their office directly. Prices also do not include charges for anesthesia, drugs, supplies, or additional testing, services or procedures ordered by your physician.  Your final bill will vary depending on the actual services provided, existing health conditions that may impact your care (such as obesity, diabetes or smoking), and your insurance coverage, if you are insured.

Consumers can access a number of government and private websites, which provide additional information on hospitals' charges and quality, through the internet. The American Hospital Association and your state Hospital Association may also have valuable information to help you understand healthcare pricing.
