Knowing your costs means better planning.
Coming soon, HFHS will be launching an interactive self-service estimate tool that will allow you to create your own estimates in real-time! The new tool will create estimates with expected out-of-pocket costs—based on your expected service and your specific insurance co-pay, co-insurance, and deductible information.
In an era of rising healthcare prices and complexity, in is in your best interests to understand what to expect to pay before your visit and in the days to follow.
Henry Ford Health System is committed to providing you with the highest quality of care at the lowest costs. As a part of that mission, we want to be as helpful, transparent and clear as possible when it comes to cost of care.
Cost estimates for common procedures
Henry Ford's charges are the same for all patients, but your responsibility will vary depending on your health insurance plan. Our estimate may not include charges for anesthesia, drugs or supplies. Fees for you doctor services or anesthesiologist will be billed separately.
Estimates available include:
- Imaging services (MRI, CT scans, etc.)
- Common lab tests
- Women's health (mammogram, PAP, etc.)
- Doctor visits (Wellness, check-ups, etc.)
- Outpatient procedures
Why was my bill different than my estimate?
Henry Ford is committed to providing the information that allows you to be informed about your health care services. Our hope is that our pricing estimates help set some expectations about costs.
To determine your expected out of pocket costs, we estimate the amount allowed by your insurance company for the anticipated service provided, based on your benefit plan and your insurance company’s contracted rate with HFHS. But there will still be factors we cannot plan for in an estimate.
- Prices are based on patient needs and the level of service.
- There are many products and services bundled into one hospital visit. Medications, tests, additional supplies all impact the cost.
- Hospitals reimbursements vary based on the policies of different insurance companies, health plans, and government plans such as Medicare and Medicaid.
