Pricing Transparency

Orange County and High Desert Hospitals

At Providence, we know that health care can be an unexpected expense and that the cost of health care services can be a deciding factor for many people as they plan for care.

Providence supports health care pricing transparency and tools that help patients and all consumers evaluate what care is best for them and any related financial costs. That is why we are easing your way with a self-serve price estimator. Its out-of-pocket cost estimates are tailored to each person’s insurance coverage and preferred Providence hospital.  

Get your estimate

We encourage all health care consumers to speak with their providers and their health plan to get a full picture of their treatment plan and what they will pay. For our patients, we offer financial counseling for those experiencing hardship during any point throughout their care.

In 2018, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid issued guidance for hospitals to make available a list of their standard charges online. However, hospital charges don’t provide a full picture of what patients will pay. We hope you will use our helpful price estimator for of out-of-pocket costs.
