At Evanston Regional Hospital, our goal is to provide patients with high quality care and the best possible patient experience. We know that the billing and payment process may seem overwhelming at times and we want to be as helpful as possible. Below is some information on pricing and how you can become a better-informed healthcare consumer.
We are happy to follow CMS (Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services) guidelines that require all hospitals to make available a list of standard charges (sometimes called a Chargemaster List) for products and services provided at the facility. This list and background information regarding it and CMS guidelines can be found here:
Shoppable Pricing and Services
Healthcare pricing can be confusing because there are so many variables. Do you have insurance coverage or not? If you do, who is your insurance provider? What plan do you have with that provider? The questions can go on, and on. But to make things easier for you, and to be in compliance with CMS’ requirements, we are very happy to offer an online tool that displays shoppable services in a consumer-friendly format. Need an MRI? Enter your information and see a price estimate for that service. Looking for a discount by paying cash upfront? We can estimate that for you, too. Click the link below to get started.
MD Save… Check it Out and Save.
MDsave is the world’s first online healthcare marketplace, bringing together patients seeking affordable, reliable care with providers offering high quality services at fair prices. That’s why we partnered with them to offer discounted pricing on medical services like imaging, general surgery and more. For those without insurance, you may be able to save as much as 60% on your medical bill by buying procedures upfront.
Surprise Medical Billing Protections
When you get emergency care or get treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from surprise billing or balance billing.
