Federal regulations require all hospitals to post detailed information about the charges for all services and supplies that could be billed to a patient, including payer specific negotiated rates. The payer negotiated rates do not take into account specific elements of a patient’s health plan and specific benefit obligations such as deductibles, co-payments, co-insurance, and whether the hospital is an in-network facility, therefore patients will likely only be obligated to pay a portion of these rates and should consult with their health plan administrator to assist in understanding their eligible coverage and benefits. The machine-readable file posted below are not a guarantee of what a patient will be charged, but merely an estimate based on historical experience. Actual charges will differ from the estimated charges based on the complexity level of the medical condition, length of hospital stay, procedure time and medical supplies consumed during an encounter. We encourage patients looking to estimate their out-of-pocket expenses to use the Price Estimator Tools noted above.
