An estimate of the cost of the procedure you are planning to have is available by contacting our Utilization Review department at 402.372.2404. Please be as specific as possible when stating the type of procedure you are going to have performed.
Please note that the estimate will only be for hospital charges. Our estimate will not include any physician charges that will be billed to you separately which may include the radiologist, pathologist, surgeon or family practice physician. The estimate given to you will include the anesthesia that you will receive, if any, with your procedure.
The estimate will be based on average charges for that procedure. The actual charge may vary based on the services delivered and your medical condition. If additional tests or services are ordered by your provider, the actual charge may vary from the estimate given to you.
The Nebraska Hospital Association has recently created a website called NHA Care Compare. This website allows health care consumers to receive basic information about services and average charges at Nebraska hospitals. The website details the number of discharges, average length of stay, and average charge for certain inpatient procedures/surgeries at any hospital in the state of Nebraska. You can also compare the previously mentioned data to other hospitals in similar regions, state-wide and to specific hospitals. This is a great tool for patients to use prior to receiving care at a facility. There is also information on quality, frequently asked questions about hospital bills, and other healthcare areas of interest. The website address is www.nhacarecompare.org.
