Things you should know
  • Pricing: On this website, you will find the general price estimate of procedures.
  • Procedures vary: Keep in mind procedure costs can vary. For example, when considering an outpatient service, for one person this may be very straight-forward while another person can have unforeseen complications that could impact the cost.
  • Hospital costs: Additionally, “hospital” costs do not include costs charged by others outside the hospital who are involved in a patient’s procedure such as physicians, some radiologists, anesthesiologists, etc.

The information provided on this website is a best estimate and is not a guarantee of what you will be charged. Based on your unique medical condition and medical needs as determined by your physician, the actual charges will be either lower or higher than the estimates on this website. The actual charges will depend upon a variety of factors such as:

• The length of time spent in surgery or recovery • The number of days spent in the hospital • Specific equipment • Supplies and medications required • Additional tests required by your physician • And/or any unusual special care or unexpected conditions or complications

These estimates do not include any physician charges (e.g. office visit, surgeon, anesthesiologist, emergency room physician, radiologist, pathologist, consulting physicians, etc.). If you have insurance, your benefits will ultimately determine the amount you owe (including deductibles, co-pay, co-insurance, and out-of-pocket maximums).
