Hospital Price Transparency
Garfield Medical Center is committed to making information available to
you to help you understand and anticipate your cost of healthcare treatment
and services. We are providing a file of our standard charges for all
services provided. If you have insurance, or are a qualified uninsured
patient, your cost may be lower than the charges shown in the file.
Calculating the cost of healthcare is complex and we are here to help you
make informed healthcare decisions. We will be happy to discuss with you
any prospective services and help you calculate your expected out-of-pocket
costs if you choose our hospital. You can speak with a financial counselor at
You are about to download a spreadsheet of “standard charges,”
which the hospital is making available in accordance with Section 2718(e)
of the Public Health Services Act and guidance issued by the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”).
- By clicking below, you acknowledge that the Hospital’s list of “standard
charges” reflects data in the hospital’s chargemaster, but
that your actual financial liability for any hospital items and services
received may differ based on your health care coverage or any financial
assistance you may receive. Medicare, Medicaid, and other government-sponsored
health coverage as well as employer-sponsored and commercial health care
plans that have a network provider agreement with the hospital may pay
a different amount, and any deductible, copayment, or coinsurance obligation
you might have may vary accordingly. In addition, some patients are eligible
for financial assistance under our financial assistance policy. If you
are concerned about the cost of care, please contact our financial counselors
at the number above.
By clicking below, you also acknowledge that charges for certain items
and services may differ from the “standard charges” shown
on this spreadsheet as follows: (1) Charges for drugs and biologicals
vary based on market prices, and the “standard charges” shown
reflect the charges in effect based on market prices on the date shown.
(2) Charges for inpatient admissions vary depending on the particular
items and services a patient receives during his or her inpatient stay
and the current charges for those items and services, and the “standard
charges” shown for inpatient stays reflect the average charges billed
during an inpatient stay between the dates shown with no adjustment for
subsequent changes in charges.
- In order to better understand your potential cost-sharing obligation, we
recommend that you contact our financial counselors at the number above.
