Price Transparency

We encourage patients to find out as much as they can about the cost of care before coming to the hospital. The price you pay for health care services depends on your insurance coverage. You may talk with your insurance provider or a representative from Medicare or Medicaid to determine any deductibles, co-payments or other out-of-pocket costs.

Highlands Medical Center complies with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services which requires all hospitals to post their standard charges online.

Please note that these listed dollar amounts are the gross standard charges to provide a particular service, supply or drug. These amounts do not reflect what the hospital is paid or what patients will ultimately pay.

Actual hospital payments received for providing these services are set by either the government or by negotiation with private insurance companies. These payments are typically less than the standard charger for caring for our patients.

Requests for specific prices estimates and patient out-of-pocket cost estimates should be directed to Admissions at (256) 218-3778 or (256) 218-3800.
