Avoiding Surprise Bills
The information provided below is a comprehensive list of charges for each
inpatient and outpatient service or item provided by a hospital, also
known as a chargemaster. It is a listing of each test, exam, surgery,
other procedures, supplies and drugs that could be utilized for our patients.
It is not a helpful tool for patients to comparison shop between hospitals
or to estimate what health care services are going to cost them out of
their own pocket as patients are almost never billed the chargemaster
amount. The chargemaster amounts are billed to an insurance company, Medicare,
or Medicaid. In situations where a patient does not have insurance, our
hospital has financial assistance policies that apply discounts to the
amounts charged.. For more information about the cost of your care, please
contact our patient financial services Financial Counselors at (419) 591-3813
(Monday - Friday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.).
