Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
A detailed list of inpatient and outpatient services or items provided by a hospital.
Effective January 1, 2019, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) required hospitals to make their chargemasters available online. A chargemaster is a master listing of all items that a hospital may charge or use while providing various healthcare services. The chargemaster is updated frequently.
Chargemasters for Wellstar Health System hospitals are available on this page as required by CMS, but may not be exactly what you are looking for.
The chargemaster details inpatient and outpatient services or items provided by a hospital. This listing includes thousands of entries which cover each test, exam, surgical procedure, room charge and more that a patient may receive during hospital care.
Chargemaster information is not particularly helpful for patients, because:
More detailed information about Chargemasters is available below. For patients who are uninsured, underinsured or experiencing financial hardship due to a catastrophic medical event, visit our financial assistance page to learn more.
To learn more about estimated expenses to expect from an upcoming procedure, please contact your insurance company, Medicare or Medicaid.
If you would like more information about the chargemaster, what your care will cost you or the hospital’s financial assistance policy, Wellstar has several consumer-friendly options available to assist you:
Wellstar offers hospital price estimates for insured and non-insured patients. Such estimates are designed to help in understanding what to expect financially before receiving services. The estimate provided is based on many factors including anticipated service specific charges, historical averages, and information received from the patient’s insurance company, when available. Wellstar understands that medical care is not always a defined course of treatment for every patient and there is a need to rely on one’s physician(s) to ensure tailored care for specific health care needs. Just as no two patients are the same, Wellstar uses the best information available in advance of services being provided to estimate costs in advance of care actually being provided. The final bill, however, may be significantly different from the hospital price estimate provided, and Wellstar is not liable for any discrepancies between the estimate and the price of the actual, individualized care provided. Further, the estimate does not include associated professional fees, like fees for costs of Anesthesiologists, Pathologists, and Radiologists.
For assistance with Hospital Pricing Estimates, please contact our Price Estimation Specialists at (470) 245-9998 or, visit MyChart and select, "Get an Estimate", or use our contact form. The information contained in Wellstar estimates is intended for informational purposes only and does not represent any obligation or agreement.
Please consult with your insurance provider to understand your insurance coverage, which charges will be covered, how much you will be billed, information on deductibles and your expected out-of-pocket responsibility.
