In an effort to assist those individuals who may be seeking medical care services we think it is essential now more than ever to provide pricing information so that people can make informed decisions about their healthcare cost. This information allows consumers to better anticipate and understand their financial responsibilities as it relates to their medical care services at our hospital.
Providing visibility to the pricing of medical care services we offer is just another way we exhibit our vision and mission of providing excellent patient care.
The pricing includes per day room and board (for inpatients), supplies, nursing care, equipment use, nutritional services, and any services handled by the staff of the hospital within the walls of the hospital. It does not include professional physician services, lab, diagnostic testing or services provided by a third party.
This information serves as a resource for you to obtain estimated pricing for services performed at Baylor Scott & White Emergency Hospitals. We hope that this information may be of assistance as you seek to obtain financial information about your pending care. The information provided is meant to enable you to make more informed decisions about your healthcare and have a better understanding when you visit our hospital.
Below are links to listings of Inpatient DRGs and Procedures with hospital charges. This pricing is only a reasonable estimate that could be inferred from these services. Please note, these numbers are not an exact estimate and should not be considered as the final charge nor the sum of all services a person may be charged. Several factors are included in calculating how pricing is provided to the patient. Some of these factors include but are not limited to:
- Length of Stay
- Conditions and Complications
- Medications and Treatments
- Diagnostic Testing
Due to the fact that the listing is organized by Inpatient DRGs and service descriptions, knowing the services requested may provide an approximation for what the hospital charges may be. Additionally, knowing the description of a patient’s condition while in the hospital in an inpatient status would aid in determining the DRG and therefore an approximate charge.
