Pricing Transparency

Pricing Transparency

Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas is committed to pricing transparency for our patients. We know that especially today when so many people are uninsured or under-insured, it is important for patients to have healthcare pricing information. We are making this information available to consumers so they can better anticipate and understand their financial responsibilities and make informed healthcare decisions.

Uninsured or under-insured patients may qualify for significant pricing discounts. Baptist Hospital offers a financial assistance program that may help you qualify for significantly reduced patient portions.

Our financial specialist can also discuss cash pricing arrangements.

Insured patient portions are determined by your insurance company benefits and most entail discounts from charges as well. Significantly discounted rates are also available for many procedures that are not routinely covered by your insurance company.

The hospital’s charges are the same for all patients, but a patient’s responsibility may vary, depending on the discounts negotiated with individual health insurers. Also, the charge lists do not include physicians’ fees from emergency physicians, surgeons, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists or other professional fees. Your physician’s office will bill you separately for services and should be able to give you pricing information if you call their office directly. Your final bill may vary based on the actual services provided, existing health conditions that may impact your care, and your insurance coverage if you are insured.

We have provided two types of files for your convenience:

A Detailed Charge list, which includes basic information about our hospital charges, is available Here.

A Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) list, which includes all charges associated with an inpatient stay from time of admission to discharge, is available Here.

Because we know that healthcare is complex, we have developed an online form where consumers can contact us directly for a prospective service quote.
