On August 2, 2018, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule (CMS-1694-F) requiring all hospitals “make available a list of their current standard charges via the Internet in a machine readable format, and to update this information at least annually.” ECH is pleased to provide this information to our patients, as we recognize that making good health care decisions requires having all of the facts and understanding your options.
In compliance with the new federal regulation, this price list contains our hospital standard charges as of January 1, 2019. Standard charges are the same for all patients; however, financial responsibility may vary based on a patient’s individual medical insurance plan as well as our organization’s contracts with insurance companies. Uninsured or underinsured patients may be eligible for discounts. Our Financial Counselor is available to assist all patients early in the process to identify eligibility for additional financial assistance.
Please direct any questions regarding this initiative to our Financial Counselor at (518) 873-3139.
