Price transparency for hospital charges

Your Medical Costs

Columbia Memorial Hospital charges everyone the same prices. As a not-for-profit hospital, Columbia Memorial Hospital’s prices only include the cost of providing the service in a rural area and community health needs. But, your final cost will also depend on your health insurance.

Hospital Charges

Each service or item has a “charge” or price associated with it. After a hospital stay or visit, your total charges will vary based on:

  • the severity of your illness,
  • the number and types of procedures performed,
  • medical devices used,
  • and/or how long you’re at CMH.

Your total charges do not include fees charged by physicians working in the hospital, such as radiologists, pathologists, hospitalists, and anesthesiologists.

You may research CMH’s current charges in this price transparency table, but we always recommend calling a CMH patient financial counselor for the most accurate estimate of future medical costs.

My Bill

Most insurance companies have negotiated rates with CMH. So, your cost may vary from someone else’s for the same service because of your health insurance. In most instances, people with Medicare, Medicaid, or commercial insurance will pay much less than the original charge.

At CMH, we want to help you plan for and control your costs. Please call one of our Financial Counselors at 503-338-7530. They can help you estimate the cost of your medical care beforehand. And, they can help you find financial assistance, if you meet the qualifications.
