Transparency in Billing and Pricing for Surgical Services

If you are having surgery in a hospital, these are common services and representative billed charges for a California Hospital.  You should be aware that other charges exist for a hospital.  For example, if you enter through the emergency room, if you have lab services, if you have radiology services, if you have consults…. these sevices are all additional charges.  Anesthesia and your physician charges are additional.  If you are in Nevada or anywhere in the World, you can have access to our panel of specialists and if they offer the service you can have these services for less than half of these charges.    Our goal is to take care of patients first and take care of finances second.   If you share our philosophy and want to help with our objective, you can help by using our services or making a contribution to a fund earmarked for under and uninsured patients.   Every dollar you contribute will be matched up to $10,000.  Consult your account regarding the deductibility of these contributions.

How To Get the Most Out Of Hospital and Surgery Center Price Transparency

We believe consumers should be able to know, long before they open a medical bill, roughly how much a hospital, doctor, anesthesiologist or surgery center will charge for goods and services it provides.  Now that hospital price transparency is in effect as of January 1, 2021, hospitals’ standard charges, including the rates they negotiate with insurance companies and the discounted price a hospital is willing to accept directly from a patient if paid in cash, must be publicly available, free of charge, and presented in a consumer-friendly display.

Review the Data.

Hospitals must post standard charges for at least 300 shoppable services that can be planned in advance, along with a description and any other services the hospital customarily provides with it. This includes things such as x-rays, outpatient visits, imaging and laboratory tests or bundled services such as a colonoscopy. You should be able to find the hospital’s standard charge for the shoppable service and see other associated costs.   You might have to do some digging and the prices may not be updated for 2021 but at least this is a start.   Unfortunately the facility is only one part of a bill.  The ambulance, rehab facility, nursing home, skilled and non skilled home care, doctor charges and anesthesia and consultant charges are still a mystery.   Furthermore, charge data is relatively useless because providers or facilities rarely collect billed charges with insurance fixed pricing and negotiated discounts.   Unless you are paying cash, this number will be the maximum you are likely to pay or will pay if you fail to negotiate your bill.   If you would like help finding a facility that meets your budget or negotiating your bill, contact us.

    The overall rating is based on how well a hospital performs across different areas of quality, like treating heart attacks and pneumonia, readmission rates, and safety of care.

    Learn how Medicare calculates this rating

    Patient survey rating TWO STARS

    The patient survey rating measures patients’ experiences of their hospital care. Recently discharged patients were asked about important topics like how well nurses and doctors communicated, how responsive hospital staff were to their needs, and the cleanliness and quietness of the hospital environment.
