What is price transparency?

People deserve meaningful information about the price of their hospital care. Price transparency is an effort to make the necessary information available and easy to understand to help consumers compare provider costs and anticipate their own expenses. Lexington Medical Center is committed to sharing information that will help you make important decisions about your health care plans.

What we charge

We have provided a complete list of our hospital chargemaster that includes charges for all items and services provided by our facility. This information is intended to meet the requirements of The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) final inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) for federal fiscal year 2019. The IPPS rule contains a transparency provision that will be effective January 1, 2019. The prices included on this website may not reflect the most current charge items or charge amounts of Lexington Medical Center as additions and changes are frequently made to the listing. Therefore, these charges may not represent the charges you will receive on your bill for provided services. CMS requires hospitals to update charge data at least annually. Lexington Medical Center last updated its data on December 31, 2018.

How do I estimate the amount I will be required to pay?

Unfortunately, understanding what you will have to pay for health care services is very complicated. Unlike most bills you receive, it is very difficult for you to determine exactly what you will have to pay for an item or service. It is even hard for your hospital to estimate prior to your care what you may be billed since every patient’s care is different and is determined after you are admitted.

The amount of money you will be responsible for personally is generally determined by your insurance coverage or managed care company, not by the hospital. This amount is determined directly by your contract with your insurer. Also, all doctors, hospitals or services may not be covered by your insurance plan. Unfortunately, we do not have this information available to us before you receive care from our hospital. The best source of information about what you will have to pay will come from your insurance company, as they are already aware of what services are covered, who they will pay to deliver the care, and the amount for they will hold you responsible to pay.

Medicare and Medicaid pay hospitals according to a set fee schedule. Their fees represent a discount from the hospital’s billed charges. Numerous factors, such as co-insurance and deductibles, affect your own financial responsibility. A summary of Medicare patient payment requirements is provided at Medicare.gov.

Lexington Medical Center wants to provide the care that you need, when you need it, delivered at the highest quality possible, at the most affordable price possible.
