Healthcare cost reimbursement: Who pays and how much?
HospitalCharge App provides medical diagnoses and procedures costs comparison.
Visitors to this site need to remember that the average submitted charge amount is not what the actual price or cost of the service will be. The average submitted charge amount is what the facility or provider would charge you for the service.
The hospital or provider's average submitted charge amount is different from what Medicare will pay. For example, if a procedure charge is $4000.00, Medicare may pay $650.
PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE:
Your private insurance company negotiates lower rates with providers so that your costs will be lower than the average submitted charge.
If you are not insured, the average submitted charge amount may not be the actual cost to the patient in the event that the hospital or provider has policies in place to make costs more affordable.
