Chargemaster Price List (updated January 1, 2020)
The prices on this list are standard gross charges for services and do not reflect insurance discounts Excelsior Springs Hospital has negotiated with most of the insurers. To obtain an accurate estimate of your out of pocket expense, please request a price estimate by contacting our Business Office at 816-630-6081.
What factors affect the cost of my care?
There are many factors impacting the price of healthcare:
Insurance Coverage – health plan coverage, including your deductible, copayment and coinsurance will determine how the costs of your healthcare are distributed between you and your health plan
Network – health plans have different networks
If you choose a provider in network, you will typically pay a lower price as these providers have an agreement with your health plan. If you choose a provider out of your plan’s network, you will usually have to pay a higher price.
You will want to assess if the provider you are choosing is in your plan’s network and if not, what your total costs will be for using an out of network provider.
