While these documents provide a complete listing of all HFHS charges, they are not intended to provide an estimate of a patient’s out of pocket cost. Patients should not use the standard charges for estimating out of pocket cost as it would significantly overstate a patient’s financial responsibility.
A patient’s out-of-pocket cost is not based on the standard charge, but rather the discounted rates agreed to between HFHS and its contracted payers, and a patient’s benefits and deductible status – see example below.
||$1,200 (HFH Charge Master File)|
|Insurance allowed amount (example only)||$500 (Contracted rate between HFHS & Payer)|
|Patient’s remaining deductible (example only)||$150 (Patient’s out of pocket cost for service)|
HFHS is committed to providing affordable care for its patients through its financial assistance programs, interest free payment plans, and other financing options.
