Understanding Your Costs – Patient Cost Estimator
BJC HealthCare and our hospitals want to help you understand the financial obligations and resources related to your medical care and services.
The following information is needed to prepare the most accurate estimate:
Patient contact information including name, address, phone number, email and date of birth
BJC hospital name(s)
Procedure or service (include CPT code on your physician order, if known)
If insured, insurance information including subscriber information, policy and group number
Please note the following important information about your estimate:
The estimate we provide will be based on information you submit; please complete the form as instructed.
This estimate is for hospital costs only, which do not include physician or other professional fees that are billed separately by other providers.
The estimate will be a range of possible costs or an average cost, depending on your situation.
The actual amount you are billed may be more or less than the estimate we provide; the actual amount may vary, depending on any other health issues, medications, unexpected complications if they occur and other factors that may arise.
If you have insurance, please contact your health plan to make sure the BJC hospital you would like to use is in your plan’s network, which gives you the greatest benefit; you also can get information about your specific benefit plan, such as whether the service you desire is covered in your plan and the amount of deductible or co-payment you may owe.
If we need additional information to complete your request, we will contact you within five business days at the phone number or email address you provide on the form.
