Understanding Health Care Pricing
At Southeast Georgia Health System, we understand the challenges and barriers
the health care market poses. To make your health care experience easier,
we continuously work to provide resources that may help you manage your
health care expenses, feel confident in your choice for care, and understand
how to best use your insurance plan benefits.
The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) has developed a
patient-friendly consumer guide to assist you and we are pleased to make
this resource available. We believe HFMA’s consumer guide is an
excellent resource offering a wide variety of information to help you
understand the costs associated with your care.

As part of our ongoing effort to improve the patient experience, Southeast
Georgia Health System offers a simple price list detailing the average
estimated charges for our most common inpatient and outpatient hospital
services. This information is updated annually and is based on the patient
charges actually incurred for the listed services during the previous
Southeast Georgia Health System charges are the same for every patient.
However, a patient's individual responsibility will vary depending
on their individual health plan's co-insurance and deductible requirements,
as well as the payment terms agreed upon between the insurance company
and the hospital.
Uninsured or underinsured patients should consult with our financial counselors
or billing staff to determine whether they qualify for discounts, financial
assistance or government-assisted health insurance programs.
The pricing available below is an estimate only. The actual cost of your
care may be higher or lower based on factors specific to your visit, such
as your length of stay in the hospital, the complexity of your medical
condition, and services ordered by your physician(s).
Also, these estimates reflect hospital charges only. They do not include
physician or other provider fees that are billed separately from hospital fees.
You may receive bills from multiple physicians for their services, including
but not limited to your anesthesiologist, hospitalist, pathologist, radiologist,
cardiologist, emergency room physician, and other specialists who participate
in your care. If you have questions regarding the bill for their services,
please contact the individual provider.
