Compare the Cost of Exempla's Care
Some independent organizations have created websites intended to help consumers get a better understanding of how hospital charges may differ from one hospital to another.
These websites currently use total gross charges that an insurance company will be billed as the basis of comparison. Some also include basic examples of what your total cost might be based on your insurance type.
Because of the variation in actual charges between different patients and different insurance plans, it is best to contact your insurance plan, if you are insured, to understand how much your insurance will cover and how much you will be expected to pay.
For general comparison information about hospital gross charges, you can visit:
www.vimo.com/hospital/browseprocedures.php, which compares hospital prices nationwide for Medicare patients in a large number of disease and surgery categories.
