If you have or suspect you may have a health problem, you should consult your physician or other health care provider. The health information provided on this site adds to and does not replace the relationship that exists between you and your physician or health care provider.
Although we have made every effort to assure that the contents of this site are correct and complete, we cannot be responsible for the accuracy of the information on this site. We may change the information or update it without notice to you. We are not obligated to update this site; therefore, any information presented may be out of date.
Graham Health System is committed to transparency regarding charges for hospital services. The information included in the Chargemaster file is a complete list of all of our charges for our hospital services. These are the baseline rates for services provided at Graham Health System. It is the starting price of services performed for each patient’s individual treatment.
This Chargemaster is not the best tool for patients to determine out-of-pocket cost of care and do not necessarily reflect what a patient may pay. Government insurance plans such as Medicare and Medicaid do not pay the Chargemaster rates, but rather have their own fee schedules which hospitals are obligated to accept. Commercial insurance payments are based on contract negotiations with managed care payors. Your financial responsibility will depend on your insurance coverage and the services that you receive. Patients without commercial insurance or not covered by a government health care plan should contact the hospital prior to a procedure to discuss charges, alternative pricing, and payment terms.
Our Business Office would be happy to provide an estimate of your out-of-pocket expense based on the services you will be receiving and your insurance coverage. For more information regarding patient liability estimates, please contact (309) 649-6818 or click on the Patient Estimate link on the website. Our Business Office will do our very best to provide an information based on planned services, but please know that this will be an estimate as information cannot be guaranteed until services have been received.
For questions regarding options for payment or financial assistance, please contact our patient financial advocates at Graham Health System at (309) 649-6818 or by visiting them on the ground level of the hospital in the Main Lobby area.
