Pricing Transparency

Myrtue Medical Center understands how important it is for you to have information about the cost of health care to make informed decisions. Hospital pricing, however, is complex and includes many factors, such as:

  • Pricing varies based on a patient’s needs and level of services provided.
  • A wide range of products and services are bundled into the price of a particular hospital service, including facility and provider charges, medications, supplies, tests and more.
  • Hospital reimbursement varies from patient to patient based on the payments mandated by different insurance companies, health plans, and government payors, such as Medicare and Medicaid.

All of these factors combined make specific advance pricing information difficult to provide on an individual basis. Myrtue strives to provide meaningful pricing information, which should be used in conversation with your insurance provider to better understand your potential out-of-pocket costs for health care services. Please keep in mind, pricing information provided herein is subject to change without notice.
