Options to Estimate Your Health Care Costs

When you need our services, you may wonder how much your care will cost. Here are several ways to get the information you need:

1. Contact Your Insurance Provider

If you have health insurance, it is best to first contact your insurance provider. 

Why? Many insurance providers offer price estimates for your out-of-pocket costs based on your plan's specific benefits. Also, your insurance provider may be able to estimate the cost for all your care - including not only hospital charges but also physician charges and other associated charges, such as therapy. Your insurance provider may also have information to help you compare price and quality measures for all the healthcare providers available to you in your plan.

2. Request a Personalized Cost Estimate from Clarke County Hospital

CCH personalized out-of-pocket cost estimates (price estimates) are available. 

Based on your specific planned services and your insurance plan. To request a cost estimate, just call 641-342-5258.

Why? We are committed to providing you with information about your estimated out-of-pocket cost as you make health care decisions. Clarke County Hospital has agreements with many insurance companies that determine the amount we are paid. Our Financial Counselor will verify your insurance coverage and benefits, including your plan's required co-payments, deductible cost, co-insurance and maximum out-of-pocket cost specified in your plan. We can also discuss your payment options.

3. Use the CCH Cost Estimator Tool

Self-service cost estimates (price estimates) for many common non-emergency procedures and services are now available. 

Clarke County Hospital has a new user-friendly tool to help estimate your likely out-of-pocket costs for many common health care procedures (for example, abdominal surgery, joint surgery, obstetric care) and services (such as CT, MRI or ultrasound imaging or laboratory services). The tool is available online:

4. Request Financial Assistance

If you are not insured or think you will need help paying your bill, please call 641-342-5258.

Why? Clarke County Hospital has financial assistance policies to assist patients who cannot pay for some or all the care they receive. Our Financial Counselor can also help determine if you are eligible for other coverage or benefits.
