DISCLAIMER AND EXPLANATION OF CHARGEMASTER DATA
Unity Medical and Surgical Hospital (“Hospital”) is committed to pricing transparency and has made available for our patients our standard charge master, which is a list of all possible charges that a patient could see on their bill. These are the baseline rates for items and services provided at the Hospital and are effective as January 1, 2019. Rates and charges may be updated from time to time based on new services and/or products.
It should be noted that this list of charges is only reflective of the Hospital facility charges. It does not reflect the charges for physicians, such as the surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist, pathologist, or other physician specialists or providers who may be involved in providing care to a patient. These charges are billed separately.
The charges listed provide only a general starting point in determining the potential costs of an individual patient’s care at the Hospital. Descriptions could vary greatly, and services could be bundled differently from hospital to hospital. Many factors may influence the actual cost of an item or service, including insurance coverage, and rates negotiated with payors.
We strongly encourage patients who are seeking an estimate for their out of pocket costs to contact our Patient Access Department at 574-231-6802, and we will gladly work with you to understand what your financial responsibility will be.
We also encourage patients to consider other factors when deciding on where they will have health care services performed. Unity Medical and Surgical Hospital scores consistently high in Patient Satisfaction and Quality Measures.
