Pricing for CHCS Hospital Services

In compliance with federal pricing transparency guidelines, below is a link to a list of standard charges for inpatient and outpatient hospital services provided by Community HealthCare System (CHCS). What a patient owes for a hospital procedure or service can vary greatly, depending on health insurance coverage, eligibility for state or federal programs and each individual's own situation.

It is important to note that a single procedure can have multiple charges that may include, but are not limited to, physician services, lab, diagnostic services, etc. Each person's healthcare needs are unique and total charges will be based on an individual's specific medical needs.

Important notes about listed prices

1. All pharmacy and supply charges are variable based on current cost, these items are listed as "Pharmacy" or "Supplies" on the charge list. If you would like updated charges, please contact Access Services at the number listed below. If you would like updated charges, please contact Liz Murphy at the number listed below.

2. Some professional charges (specialty providers, radiologists, pathologists, ambulance services etc.) are billed directly by the outside provider; therefore, are not included in CHCS’s list of charges.

3. Some charges are listed as price per unit, and the total charge is calculated based on dosage or time.

If you have Health Insurance

Non-governmental or private (commercial) health plans pay rates that are negotiated between the payer and the hospital through contracts. Patients with insurance will likely see an adjustment reflecting the difference in the hospital's charges and the amount the insurance company has negotiated for services rendered. In addition, deductibles and co-pays will impact the patient's final out-of-pocket costs.

If you have Medicare and/or Medicaid

Government payers, like Medicare and Medicaid, pay the lowest rates and tell hospitals the amount they will be paid for services.

Medicare rates are pre-determined and are non-negotiable.

Medicaid pays a predetermined fixed amount for services based on a patient's diagnoses and treatments. Payments are not guaranteed to cover costs.

Uninsured or Underinsured

At Community HealthCare System, patients receive necessary medical care, regardless of their ability to pay. Services are provided without regard to culture, age, gender, sexual orientation, spiritual beliefs, socioeconomic status, language or disability. We will review your eligibility for financial assistance and assist you in making payment arrangements.
