Common Charge Estimates

As required by federal law, Methodist Health System has provided a link to standard charges as reflected in the chargemaster. The chargemaster can be very confusing to patients, and we strongly encourage you to contact a facility financial counselor who can explain your insurance benefits and discounts that may apply to your specific hospital stay.

Financial counselors are available free of charge to answer any questions you may have about your health insurance benefits, insurance contracted discounts, and uninsured discounts. The counselors can provide you with a written estimate which details individual charges from the chargemaster, insurance or uninsured discounts and patient portion due for tests, surgeries or inpatient stays, or you can click on the Patient Estimate Tool to produce your own estimate.
