Rehabilitation Hospital Insurance, Estimates, and Cost
Effective Jan. 1, 2019, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services requires hospitals to make a list of standard charges available to the public via the internet and that hospitals update the information at least annually, or more often as appropriate.
While we provide this information to comply with federal regulations, healthcare billing is complex. It is extremely important for you, as the consumer, to understand that standard charges may not be a relevant starting point for figuring out what costs you owe after care.
The amount a patient actually pays will depend on that patient’s insurance coverage, policy provisions and other factors. Everyone’s case is different.
The charges displayed only include hospital charges and do not include charges that are billed separately by the physician or other professional fees. Furthermore, the actual amount paid by a patient will depend on that patient’s insurance coverage, as benefit plans vary greatly.
IF YOU HAVE COMMERCIAL INSURANCE:
• Contact your insurance company to understand all of the factors affecting your financial responsibility.
• Numerous factors, such as type of plan, co-pay, co-insurance, deductible, out-of-pocket maximums, provider network and other limitations will affect your financial responsibility to a hospital.
• The prices listed below under Estimates and Costs do not include charges for the physician or other professional fees, such as pharmacy, diagnostic imaging or lab work.
• The prices also do not include any negotiated discounts between your insurance company and the hospital.
IF YOU HAVE MEDICARE:
• Medicare has many different parts, and not everyone has the same type of Medicare coverage. Medicare will pay for many of your healthcare expenses but not all of them.
• Special rules apply if you have employer group health insurance coverage through your job or a spouse’s job.
• If you have a supplemental health insurance policy, it may cover some costs that Medicare does not cover.
• The best way to be sure of what your Medicare plan covers is to call 1-800-MEDICARE, or visit the website at www.mymedicare.gov.
