Price Estimates for Patients

CHS hospitals are able to provide patients and responsible parties with price estimates for services, as well as estimates of anticipated out-of-pocket expenses.

For all elective services, these estimates will be provided before a patient receives services, and patients and responsible parties will be asked to pay their financial obligation in whole or in part at the time of service (information about financial assistance can be found here).

When calculating a price quote or estimate, the following is considered:

  • Average prices from the facility for specific diagnostic conditions, procedures and other outpatient services based on historical experience.
  • Specific benefit coverage associated with insured patients or responsible parties.
  • Average prices from the largest managed care population for uninsured patients or responsible parties.
