Publication of Standard Charges – Middlesboro ARH Hospital

 

 

You have reached the federally required section of our website that contains the charges for the services we provide within our facility.

 

Healthcare billing is complex. It is important for you, as the consumer, to understand that standard charges should be considered only a starting point for estimating what costs you may incur during an episode of care.  Hospital charges vary from patient to patient based upon each patient’s clinical need.  In addition, some insurers provide their beneficiaries with discounts when multiple procedures are performed during the same hospital encounter.  Finally, the amount you actually pay will depend upon your insurance plan’s deductible and coinsurance obligations, if any.  Per Federal requirements, the prices posted herein contain the estimated allowable amounts under particular payer plans, and do not reflect the projected amount due from the patient.

 

We welcome all patients (regardless of insurance status) to contact us for information about our financial assistance programs, or a better understanding of their insurance coverage.
