Pricing Disclosures
  • Actual hospital charges may be different because of your medical condition, length of time spent in surgery or recovery, necessary specific equipment, supplies or medication, complications requiring unanticipated procedures, or other treatment ordered by the physician.
  • If you have health insurance, significant discounts have already been obtained on your behalf and you will only pay a small portion of the charge, depending on your deductible, copay and/or coinsurance. Please provide your insurance information to the hospital and/or contact your health plan directly for your specific payment amounts.
  • This estimate is for informational purposes only and is not a quote or a guarantee of what the charges will be for a specific patient’s care.
  • This estimate does not include the professional services provided by a physician, surgeon, radiologist, anesthesiologist, pathologist, advanced practice nurse or other independent practitioners.
  • You will likely receive separate bills for the physicians and other professionals who provided treatment to you. These physicians may not be participating providers in the same insurance plans and networks as the hospital. As such, you may have greater financial responsibility for these services that are not under contract with the health plan
  • An important component of choosing a healthcare provider is determining quality of care. Your doctor can be a helpful resource in choosing where to obtain care.
