In order to comply with the next phase of implementation of the 2015 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) per CMS regulation, the following information provided is a comprehensive list of charges for each inpatient and outpatient service or item provided by our hospital, also known as a Chargemaster. This information also includes Diagnosis-Related Group (DRG) charges. It is not a helpful tool for patients to comparison shop between hospitals. The amounts listed in the Chargemaster are not what the hospital is paid by insurers, nor a good indicator of what a patient’s final out-of-pocket cost will be. Patients should contact their medical insurance provider to get further details about the possible cost of their care, including healthcare providers in- and out-of-network and covered services. Patients should also talk with their insurance provider to understand which costs will be covered by insurance and which will be the patient’s responsibility. Patients without medical coverage will find details regarding our hospital’s financial assistance policy here.
Singing River Health System may also offer cash pricing for identified procedures. If the information provided by contacting the insurance company is not sufficient and more detail is needed regarding the cost of your care, or understanding of coverage and patient responsibility, please contact Financial Services 228-762-8876.
