Hospital Pricing

To help consumers make better-informed decisions about their healthcare, Community Mercy Health Partners is committed to providing information regarding our hospital charges.

Regardless of a hospital's charges, the government determines how much the hospital is paid for a service for those enrolled in a federal and/or state program like Medicare or Medicaid. And local negotiations determine how much a hospital is paid by those enrolled in private health plans. The price for services provided is based on many factors that vary from hospital to hospital, including the costs of buying medications, surgical equipment and other supplies; powering and maintaining hospital buildings; paying highly trained healthcare workers; and purchasing up-to-date medical technology.

The best way for patients to determine their out-of-pocket costs in advance of obtaining services is to contact their insurer, whether that is a commercial health insurance company, Medicare or a state Medicaid program. If you do not have health insurance coverage, a CMHP financial representative can assist you in obtaining medical benefits through federal, state and hospital programs and can help you determine if you will have any out-of-pocket costs.

Determining Your Out-of-Pocket Costs

Although each of our hospitals charges all of its patients the same prices for the same services, the amount you will pay depends on the type of coverage you have.

  • If you have commercial health insurance, please contact your insurance company to obtain an estimate of what you will pay for a specific procedure.
  • If you have Medicare, please go to http://www.medicare.gov/Coverage/Home.asp to learn more about your out-of-pocket costs or call 1-800-MEDICARE.
  • If you have Medicaid, you may be asked to pay a small portion of the cost of some medical services depending on the Medicaid rules in your state. Learn more at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/MedicaidGenInfo/Downloads/MedicaidAtAGlance2005.pdf.
  • If you are an Ohio resident enrolled in Medicare, please go to http://jfs.ohio.gov/ohp/consumer.stm for more information.
  • If you do not have coverage, please call your hospital’s billing department and ask to speak with a financial representative who will assist you in obtaining medical benefits through federal, state and hospital programs.
