In order to comply with the next phase of implementation of the 2015 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) per CMS regulation and Price Transparency Final Rule, this page provides links to standard charge prices and shoppable services for both of our hospitals.
To gather better information, patients should review the file and contact their medical insurance provider to get further details about the possible cost of their care. Only the insurance company can provide specifics about co-pays, deductibles, and if a facility and/or provider is in or out of network. Patients should always talk with their insurance provider to better understand which costs will be covered by insurance and which will be the patient’s responsibility. Disclaimer: The cost information provided is not a guarantee of insurance coverage or final cost projection, as we cannot project all services or tests which may be ordered during your visit with us. In addition, each insurance plan may have various co-pay and deductible amounts. The information given is based upon averages.
Patients without medical coverage can contact the business office regarding our charity policy and application requirements. George Regional Health System does offer a cash price and it is reflected in the data files.
Information regarding the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act price transparency for COVID -19 testing. George Regional Health System does perform some, but not all, types of COVID-19 testing in-house. We collect the specimen (a $33.00 charge) and either process the test in-house or send the test out for processing if we do not have the machines/tools in-house. Some outside testing sites are: State/CDC, Vikor Scientific, LabCorp, CERTUS, etc. NOTE: Some of these vendors have informed us that they will also file uninsured claims (self-pay) with HRSA for reimbursement.
