The Uninsured Patient Experiment

PH_2003-03-10_rins-b.jpgIt appears that hospitals are a hit and miss proposition with elective procedures. From the Healthcare Advocate Blog.

The Uninsured Patient Experiment:

  • The list price varies by 75% ($1,013 to $3,970).
  • The best uninsured price varies by 92% ($204 to $2,600).
  • List price discounts range from 0% to 86%.
  • To get many of the discounts hospitals offer the balance needs to be paid in full at the time of service or a large down payment made, to receive it.
  • Some hospitals are unwilling to divulge the price over the phone and others will not call back.
