Hospital Pricing Transparency

Your Rights and Protections Against Surprise Medical Bills (.pdf)

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.

Our Policy

People deserve meaningful information about the price of their hospital care. Lexington Medical Center is committed to sharing information that will help you make important decisions about your health care plans.

Standard Negotiated Prices

Lexington Medical Center has developed machine-readable files of the standard prices we have negotiated with third-party payors. The information provided is intended to meet the file format requirements of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

Understanding Your Charges

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.

Insurance Coverage

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.

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. Also, all doctors, hospitals or ser-vices 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.

Medicare/Medicaid Coverage

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 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.
