Pricing Transparency Commitment
We know that especially today, when so many people are uninsured or underinsured,
it is important for individuals to have healthcare pricing information.
We are committed to making this information available to consumers so
they can better anticipate and understand their financial responsibilities
and make informed healthcare decisions.
Because we know that healthcare is complex and that a general listing of
prices for our common procedures will not meet everyone's needs, we have
added a toll free number consumers can use to contact us for an estimated
service quote. Our goal in making this information easy to access is to
remain a leader in key healthcare initiatives aimed at better patient care.
Understanding Healthcare Prices
Huntington Hospital is committed to providing meaningful information to
our patients related to financial obligations for healthcare services.
It is our intent with this website to publish our financial assistance
policies and the pricing ranges for our most common services.
In order to provide you with information that is helpful based on your
personal healthcare coverage, we must first differentiate between patients
with some form of insurance or Governmental coverage, like
Medicare or Medicaid, and patients without insurance or coverage. Huntington Hospital offers
many forms of financial relief for patients without healthcare insurance
(the "uninsured") needing emergent or non-elective services. See our Financial
Assistance section below. Learn more about pricing and payments for
Medicare patients and
Self Pay patients.
Obtaining an Estimate
Before you request an estimate, it is important that you contact your insurance
company to ensure that the services required are "covered services." In
the event that some or all are not a covered service under your plan,
please refer to our uninsured information below. You will also need to
contact your physician's office to get the specific diagnosis or procedure
Insured patients, please use our
Procedure Pricing Tool. When you use the tool, you will need the information in numbers one and
Call our service center at
1-800-464-1722 if you still have questions after using the Procedure Pricing Tool. If
our estimated pricing information does not appear to cover your service,
or if you feel you will have complicating factors requiring a more detailed
query, our representatives can provide a good faith estimate.
Prior to your call, please contact your physician's office to get the specific
diagnosis or procedure description.
When you call our service center, please have the following information
available, so that we can provide you with the best estimate possible:
- Description of services needed - we will need to know as much information
as possible about the specific services as described by your physician.
- Type of services needed - we need to know if you will be admitted to the
hospital as an inpatient overnight, or if you are expected to be treated
on an outpatient basis.
- Physician/specialist Name - example, if you are having surgery, we will
want to know the surgeon's name.
- Your insurance card - please have your card available so that if needed,
we can get the following information from you: name of insurance company,
type of policy (e.g. HMO, PPO, POS, Indemnity), policy holder's name,
group name and number, policy number, insurance company phone number.
- Policyholder's personal information - it is possible that the insurance
company will want us to verify the Social Security Number and date of
birth of the person who is named as the primary insurance policy holder.
Source of Rate Information
Generally we use recent data to determine pricing on our most common surgical
procedures and inpatient admissions. Any hospital advertised prices or
flat rates will supersede these rates. If the hospital has not had at
least 5 patients in the past year utilizing that service, "N/A" will appear
in the pricing range. "Hospital Stay range" refers to an average length
of stay in the hospital for inpatient admissions. Any hospital advertised
prices or flat rates will supersede these rates.
