Patient Estimates and Pricing

If you anticipate a procedure at any of our Methodist hospital facilities, we’d like to help you understand the costs associated with it and any financial assistance that may be available.
Patient Estimates
Use our self-service estimate tool to determine out-of-pocket costs based on your insurance coverage.

*Note: The Patient Estimate Self-Service tool is not compatible with Internet Explorer. Please use Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox or Safari to access the tool.

At Methodist Health System, we agree that transparency about the cost of health care is important. Listed below are several resources to help patients understand and compare costs.

Methodist Health System Standard Charges

To improve price transparency, all U.S. hospitals and health systems are required to provide lists of standard hospital charges – also called a chargemaster – so patients can compare prices across hospitals. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind.

  • These charges are rarely the price that patients pay. The chargemaster lists the dollar amount set for each service prior to insurance contract/benefit plan discounts or self-pay discounts being applied, so the price patients pay tends to be less than the standard charge.
  • Hospital charges differ from patient to patient for the same service depending upon variations in treatment.
  • Patients who are eligible for financial assistance may also receive additional discounts.
  • Items included in a charge vary across hospital systems. For example, what’s included in one hospital’s charge for room and board may differ from another hospital’s charge, as some hospitals bundle services together into a single charge that others may list separately.
  • Looking at various hospital charges doesn’t provide any indication of quality of service and outcomes.

Methodist Health System Shoppable Services 

All hospitals and health systems also are required to post at least 300 shoppable services along with the corresponding prices for each of those services. 

You can use our price estimator tool to access this list and get an estimate for your upcoming visit or procedure.

As with the list of standard hospital charges discussed above, what a patient actually pays will depend on their unique benefit plan terms.

Financial Assistance

Methodist Health System (MHS) is a not-for-profit health care organization guided by a commitment to its mission and core values through compassionate service. It is both the philosophy and practice of each MHS facility and provider that medically necessary health care services are available to patients and those in emergent medical need without delay and regardless of their ability to pay.

For those with limited financial resources, MHS has established a financial assistance program to help pay for care.
