For Insured Patients:
When reviewing standard charges, it is important to note that actual payment rates for hospital care provided to insured patients are:
- Negotiated with health plans
- Set by the federal government for Medicare
- Set by state governments for Medicaid
If you have private insurance and are interested in understanding what your “out-of-pocket” costs may be for the care you receive at our hospital, your health care insurance company will be in the best position to help you understand these costs, and we encourage you to contact them.
For Uninsured Patients:
Uninsured patients are not generally expected to pay the hospital’s standard charges, and may be eligible for financial assistance through the hospital’s Compact with Uninsured Patients. At our hospital, all patients will be treated fairly and with respect during and after their treatment, and regardless of their ability to pay for the services they receive. Patients without insurance will be offered reasonable payments and payment schedules and, subject to their acceptance of the offer, will be billed at discounted local market rates. Whenever possible, this will occur before the patients leave the hospital, as part of the financial counseling process.
