Pricing transparency

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have established guidance for hospitals to make available a list of their standard charges online.

At Prosser Memorial Health, we know that healthcare can be an unexpected expense and that the cost of healthcare services can be a deciding factor for many people as they plan for care. Prosser Memorial Health supports healthcare pricing transparency and tools that help patients and consumers evaluate what care is best for them and any related financial costs.

Hospital charges can help patients understand what the costs might be for certain healthcare services; however, they don't provide a full picture of what patients will pay. Patients' financial liability will depend on the full course of treatment and on the type of insurance coverage they have.

We encourage all healthcare consumers to speak with their providers and their health plan to get a full picture of what they will pay. For our patients, we offer financial counseling for those experiencing hardship during any point throughout their care.
