Total Charges and Out of Pocket Expenses

The total charges of a service or a procedure will vary based on the combination of services provided, including hospital fees, physician fees, drugs, supplies, lab tests or radiology procedures. In addition, if you receive care at one of our hospital based facilities, you may receive a hospital facility charge in addition to a professional charge.

If the services you receive are covered by your insurance, your benefits will determine how much you will be required to pay out-of-pocket. Our Financial Navigators can offer out-of-pocket estimates based on your insurance plan. Further information is available on our Patient Cost Estimator page.
