Pricing Transparency

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) established guidance for hospitals to make available a list of their standard charges online.

At St. Joseph Health, 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. St. Joseph Health supports health care pricing transparency and tools that help patients and consumers evaluate what care is best for them and any related financial costs. 

Hospital charges can help patients understand what the costs might be for certain health care services; however, they don't provide a full picture of what patients will pay. Patients’ financial liability will depend on the full course of treatment and on the type of insurance coverage they have. 

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

If you have questions, please contact billing customer service: 800-378-4189, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m..
