AnMed Health Cannon is committed to helping patients make informed choices about their care by providing meaningful information about healthcare costs. For several years, we have participated in the South Carolina Hospital Association’s PricePoint program. This online resource provides average charges for a selection of common inpatient, outpatient and emergency department procedures as a general estimate of the bill you will receive from us.
In compliance with federal law, AnMed Health Cannon also makes a complete list of standard charges available to patients. This list represents the charges for individual items and services. It is rare that a visit to the hospital will only include one of these services and because of the complex nature of healthcare, it is very difficult to know in advance which services a patient may need during his or her visit.
Also, in compliance with federal law, AnMed Health Cannon makes available a list of the average charge total for inpatient episodes of care listed by diagnosis related grouping, or DRG. A DRG is a summarized and simplified classification of inpatient care as defined by Medicare. Please note, there are some important points to keep in mind when reviewing these charge lists:
- The charges on these lists do not reflect the amount you will pay out of pocket. The amount a patient pays is based on many factors, including health insurance, benefit plans, applicable discounts, and services provided based on each patient’s unique needs.
- Although we update annually, the prices on our website may not reflect the most current charge items or charge amounts of this facility as additions and changes are frequently made to the listing. Therefore, these charges may not be representative of the charges you will receive on your bill for services provided by our facility.
- The information on our website contains only charges on AnMed Health Cannon’s chargemaster and does not include related charges for physician office fees, clinic charges, radiologists, pathologists and other professional services provided in conjunction with our hospital services.
We recommend checking with your insurance provider for the most accurate estimate of out-of-pocket costs, which is based on your insurance plan and your insurance company’s contracted rate with AnMed Health Cannon. If you are not insured, AnMed Health Cannon offers discounts on all services as well as a financial assistance program http://www.anmedhealthcannon.org/patient-visitor/financial-assistance/ and several no- or low-interest payment options no- or low-interest payment options..
