Pricing transparency 

Out-of-pocket medical costs often cause another layer of worry for patients who already have a lot on their minds. Patients may even avoid care if they don’t know what to expect from out-of-pocket costs.

Legacy Health’s price estimator tool can help clarify what you might owe for medical services. Potential costs for patients will no longer be a mystery. This transparency also means patients will benefit from a better patient experience.

About estimates

Estimates are just that. The actual charges may change based on your health plan, changes in your treatment and other factors.

For outpatient visits, it is helpful for you to have the current procedural terminology (CPT) code for the procedure. Contact your doctor’s office for the CPT code.

Machine-readable files

As required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), we are publishing a comprehensive machine-readable file of our standard charges with negotiated payer rates. Keep in mind: This file does not reflect the patient’s out-of-pocket costs. We hope you will use our helpful price estimator to determine out-of-pocket costs.

Please note: Because of the size of the file, you may need special computer software/speed to open the file.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do the charges listed reflect what my out-of-pocket costs will be?

Because your out-of-pocket costs are based on your individual health plan benefits, medical situation, treatment plan and financial situation, the machine-readable files are not a useful tool for estimating your out-of-pocket costs. 

How are charges determined?

Charges are determined by what it costs Legacy to provide the service, local market conditions, payor and regulatory requirements, as well as Legacy’s costs to operate the hospital.

Why do charges vary from hospital to hospital?

Each hospital system has its own chargemaster with its own unique pricing. Charges may vary between health systems and hospitals – even within the same local markets – because each has its own factors that influence pricing, including staffing, equipment and maintenance costs. Moreover, hospital systems may structure their charges differently, so it isn’t always possible to make a direct price comparison based on chargemasters.

As a reminder, it is always helpful to get as much information from your doctor about the anticipated care plan to use as a reference for these tools.
