Comparing Hospital Charges
Due to new federal government regulations, all hospitals are posting a list of “standard” hospital charges.
Please note some very important guidelines about this information:
- Standard pricing listed by hospitals likely does not apply to you if you have government insurance (Medicare/Medicaid), commercial insurance, or both. That’s because insurers have different rules for coverage. What you ultimately pay depends on what type of plan you have.
Medicare Price Lookup Tools
Medicare pricing for common inpatient procedures at Arnot Ogden Medical Center, St. Joseph's Hospital, and Ira Davenport Memorial Hospital have been obtained from the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS). CMS also just launched a new price lookup tool for outpatient procedures performed at hospital outpatient departments and ambulatory surgical centers.
If paying your medical bills is a financial hardship, financial assistance may be available to you. The Arnot Health credit services department helps you find programs and apply for them. Click here for more information.
