The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) established guidance for hospitals
to make available a list of their standard charges online.
At Covenant Children’s Hospital, we know that health care can be
an unexpected expense and that the cost of health care services can be
a deciding factor for many people as they plan for care. Covenant Health
supports health care pricing transparency and tools that help patients
and consumers evaluate what care is best for them and any related financial costs.
Hospital charges can help patients understand what the costs might be for
certain health care services; however, they don’t provide a full
picture of what patients will pay. Patients’ financial liability
will depend on the full course of treatment and on the type of insurance
coverage they have.
We encourage all health care consumers to speak with their providers and
their health plan to get a full picture of what they will pay. For our
patients, we offer financial counseling for those experiencing hardship
during any point throughout their care.
