Cost of Care Estimates
Cost estimates for some of our most common services and procedures are
based on a range of possible charges or an average price, depending on
which method will give the most accurate estimate. While we try our best
to provide you with an accurate estimate, the actual charge may vary due
to other factors that may arise.
There are two ways to get a cost of care estimate:

- Call 319-768-3625, option 2. Please be prepared to provide CPT/procedure
code (available from the provider that ordered the procedure) or detailed
information about your anticipated procedure.
What You Need to Know
- If you are insured, your insurance company is billed directly. We have
contractual agreements with many insurance companies that may result in
discounts to these prices. You may be responsible for out-of-pocket costs.
- Discounts may be available.
If you have concerns about paying for your services, we encourage you to

Great River Health is committed to providing accurate information to help
patients understand the cost of their care. As mandated by the Affordable
Care Act, we must post our chargemaster, the list of all items billable
to patients or patients’ health insurance providers. Provider charges
are billed separately from hospital charges. You may receive more than
one provider bill, depending on the number of physicians who helped with
your treatment. This includes anesthesiologists/certified registered nurse
anesthetists, pathologists and radiologists.
Because health care is unique to each patient, please be aware that standard
charges shown in the chargemaster usually don’t reflect what a patient
may pay. Therefore, this is not a helpful tool for patients to estimate
what health care services are going to cost them out of their own pocket
or to compare hospital costs for upcoming procedures or services.
Note: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid requires chargemaster data
be provided in a machine-readable file format. We have provided a .XML
file to meet this requirement.
