Financial Assistance

Price Transparency

The federal government requires each hospital to post on its website a list of its standard charges for items and services provided by the hospital. The law requires hospitals to set uniform charges (the amount set before any discount) as the starting point for all bills. The starting list of charges is the same for every patient. But the charges may vary by patient even though a similar procedure was performed. This may be due to the patient’s medical condition, length of time spent in surgery or recovery, complications requiring unanticipated procedures, kinds of medications needed, etc.

This information allows health care consumers to receive basic, facility-specific information about their services and charges. Community Hospital of Staunton is committed to price transparency and has posted this list of charges in its chargemaster. However, it is likely not a helpful tool for a patient to know what their financial obligation will be, or to shop between hospitals. For more information about the charge for your care and to obtain an estimate, please contact our patient Financial Counselor staff at 618-635-4253.
