Understanding Hospital Pricing and Charges
What You Should Know
Hospital charges are the same for all patients, but the patient’s financial responsibility for services provided may vary depending upon payment plans negotiated with individual health insurers as well as reimbursement schedules set forth by public payers such as Medicare and Medicaid. These charges do not include items or services that may be billed separately for physician services, lab, diagnostic services, etc.
A charge is not the same as what you may owe. A charge is the amount billed for a service. A patient’s amount due is based on insurance coverage, copay, and co-insurance. If you are uninsured, you may qualify for financial assistance.
