Choices About Your Care
Finding estimated costs for healthcare services:
Lakeland Regional Health is committed to delivering the best outcomes and safest care by placing people at the heart of all we do. Providing access to important information about the costs of your care is important to us to help you make wise choices about your family’s health care.
We are pleased to offer several ways for you to learn about the costs of hospital care.
Lakeland Regional Health’s price estimator is a great tool to find out about your out-of-pocket costs for certain tests, treatments, procedures, or other healthcare services. To get an estimate of your cost, simply enter information about your planned treatment, your insurance information, and your cost-sharing information.
If you are unable to get the information you need from the price estimator, please contact one of our financial service representatives at 863.687.1199 for assistance.
Lakeland Regional Health understands that those who are uninsured or underinsured have unique needs when it comes to health care, and we work diligently to help those individuals find available community-wide solutions in partnership with government and private organizations.
Our team is available to help you understand financial assistance, self-pay discounts and other payment plan options. We can also provide an estimate of what your financial responsibility will be after your insurance company pays its portion. You can reach one of our financial services representatives at 863.687.1199 for questions about your options.

The service bundle information is a nonpersonalized estimate of costs that may be incurred by the patient for anticipated services and that actual costs will be based on services actually provided to the patient. Patients have a right to request a personalized estimate from the hospital. Patients should contact the health care providers anticipated to provide services to the patient while in the hospital to obtain a personalized estimate of their costs, their billing practices and whether they participate in the patient’s health plan.
