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.

Patient Price Estimator

As a service to our patients, we offer financial information about upcoming procedures, including cost estimates. This information allows you to determine your estimated out-of-pocket financial responsibility for anticipated care and recovery. At a time when your focus should be on your health, we want to relieve any concerns you may have about insurance coverage, out-of-pocket costs, payment options, and the management of health care expenses.

Consumer Pricing

In compliance with the national mandates for pricing transparency, Southeast Georgia Health System is providing our Standard Chargemaster Price List and Average Charges for Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG). While we will post updates to these files annually, the pricing information may not reflect the most current charge items or charge amounts, as additions and changes to the chargemaster are necessary for a variety of reasons. Healthcare billing is complex and it is important for you, as the consumer, to understand standard charges may not be a relevant starting point for estimating the cost you may incur during an episode of care, nor do they represent what the hospital is actually paid.

Southeast Georgia Health System’s charges are the same for every patient. However, a patient's individual out of pocket responsibility will vary depending on their health insurance, benefit plans, applicable discounts, and the services provided. 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).

The pricing information on our website contains only hospital charges and does not include charges for physicians, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, anesthesiologists or other professional services provided in conjunction with a hospital service.

Uninsured or underinsured patients should consult with our financial counselors to determine whether they qualify for discounts, financial assistance or government-assisted health insurance programs.
