Billing for health care services is complex. Just as no two people or conditions are exactly alike, the services required to treat them may differ as well. In addition, insurance plans vary widely, even within the same carrier.
We understand that knowing what your health care will cost is important to you, and that knowing what to expect ahead of time can provide immeasurable peace of mind, so you can concentrate on what matters most - your health. That's why we're committed to cost transparency - the practice of providing you with as much cost information as possible, up front.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as part of the 2019 IPPS Final Rule requires hospitals to make available online a listing of standard hospital charges.
Understanding the price of medical care can make it easier to plan for health care expenses. If you would like a personalized estimate of the cost of an upcoming service you are scheduled to receive based on your specific insurance plan and procedure, please call our Day Kimball Hospital Patient Financial Services Department at (860) 963-6337 and select Option 2 to speak with a Financial Counselor.
