Samaritan Healthcare Pricing Transparency
At Samaritan Healthcare, we know that health care can be an unexpected expense and that the cost of healthcare can be a deciding factor for many people as they plan for care. We understand that high deductibles and coinsurances mean that you are likely paying more out of your own pocket for health care services. We are pleased to offer personalized patient financial estimation services based on your medical benefits and our reimbursement contract with your health plan. You can reach our Financial Access Specialist Team at (509) 765-5606 ext. 9766.
Samaritan Healthcare supports health care pricing transparency and tools that help patients and all customers evaluate what care is best for them, along with the related financial costs. This is why we are easing the way with a self-service price estimator. The price estimator’s out-of-pocket cost estimates are tailored to each person’s insurance coverage. We make every reasonable effort to be accurate, but estimates are not a guarantee.
We encourage all health care consumers to speak with their providers and their health plan to get a full picture of their treatment plan and what they will pay. The health plan is the most knowledgeable and up-to-date about the status of benefits and eligibility. For our patients, we offer financial counseling for those experiencing hardship during any point throughout their care.
In 2018, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid issued guidance for hospitals to make available a list of their standard charges available online. The chargemaster contains industry-specific language and coding that can make it confusing to navigate and because health plans negotiate the proprietary fee allowances, it does not accurately reflect or provide actual patient out-of-pocket costs. For these reasons, we hope our patients will use our helpful price estimator for out-of-pocket costs.
