Genesis Health System Pricing
To support our community need to be educated consumers of healthcare, we have developed a broad price listing of selective services that could be referenced if you are in need of health care.
We ask that you keep in mind, Hospital charges can vary greatly because each case and each patient is unique. Some patients require more or different care during the same procedure. Rarely, do patients receive the exact same service as everyone has a different health status and medical condition. Quality health care responds to individual needs. Genesis is committed to providing the highest quality care for each patient.
The pricing page lists inpatient hospital services categorized by DRG, Diagnostic Related Grouping. This identifies the diagnosis that was treated as defined by Medicare guidelines. In addition, the top ten outpatient hospital services are listed by procedure description. Prices are illustrated by averages only. As mentioned previously, a patients needs can be very different, so to reflect those differences adequately, ranges have been provided. These ranges represent the charges recorded for this diagnosis during the reporting period. It is important to note, that this information does not include physician services. Those services received by your primary care doctor or another physician while at the hospital will be separately charged by their office.
It is our hope that raising awareness of hospital pricing will empower the consumer to make informed decisions about health care. At the same time, price alone is not the only factor to consider. The information being displayed is based upon charges only. You will need to contact your insurer directly to determine the specific amount of coverage and payment allowed under your policy for the selected service.

However this list is constantly being updated, so we would encourage you to call your insurance company prior to receiving services for confirmation.
