Requesting a cost estimate
Prospective patients in the Texas Health Resources family of hospitals are welcome to request a cost estimate for any hospital procedure. Estimates are based on hospital charges for anticipated routine care and recovery, taking into consideration insurance coverage, co-payments, deductibles, coinsurance, and outstanding prior balances and other information that may affect personal out-of-pocket costs.

Actual charges on the final hospital bill may vary from the estimate, based on the patient's medical condition, unknown circumstances or complications, final diagnosis, and recommended treatment ordered by the attending physician(s). Persons with insurance should also contact their health benefits administrator for the most accurate information regarding plan structure, deductibles, co-payments and any other factors that might affect personal liability for anticipated health care services.
Estimates provided by Texas Health hospitals cover hospital charges only and do not include professional fees for services such as those provided by a physician, surgeon, radiologist, pathologist, anesthesiologist, nurse practitioner or other independent practitioner. Even though physicians and other independent practitioners are members of each Texas Health facility's medical staff or allied health professional staff, they are neither employees nor agents of the hospital. All professional fees are billed separately.
Physicians or other practitioners who provide professional services may not participate in an individual patient's health benefit plan. Patients should contact their plan administrator to determine the contract status of hospital-based providers such as pathologists, radiologists or anesthesiologists.
