Public Viewing of Hospital Charges
Massac Memorial Hospital is committed to being transparent about our charges. The requirement for transparency of hospital charges is intended to assist patients in understanding their potential financial liability for services obtained at our hospital and to allow comparison for similar services across hospitals. The information provided in the link below contains a comprehensive listing of our charges for the hospital, known as the charge master. Included in this listing are the pharmacy average wholesale prices of each single unit of medication. This is used as the base to calculate the final patient charge which will vary based on the average wholesale cost plus a markup.
Hospital charge masters are lengthy and complex documents which do not provide information at a level that is easy to understand for this purpose. Your own charges and out-of-pocket expenses will depend on the actual patient care services you receive, the terms of your insurance coverage, and/or your eligibility for financial assistance.
Requesting a pricing estimate for specific services a patient is seeking to have performed at the hospital is the recommended choice for patients to gain a better understanding of their financial responsibility. We encourage you to contact the Hospital's Pre-Registration/Scheduling department at 618-524-2176 ext 2264 to inquire about price estimates for a specific procedure or test.
