Wabash General Hospital is committed to price transparency, and the list of charges for inpatient and outpatient services is posted in compliance with the Affordable Care Act. The requirement to post hospital charges is intended to promote price transparency and assist patients in understanding their potential financial liability for services obtained at our hospital, and to allow comparison for similar services across hospitals. However, hospital charge masters are lengthy and complex documents which do not provide information at a level that is easy to understand for this purpose.
The starting list of charges is the same for every patient. However, hospital prices can vary based on patient needs. Even though a similar test or procedure is performed, the price may differ due to the patient’s medical condition, length of time spent in surgery or recovery, complications requiring unanticipated procedures, kinds of medication needed, etc.
Patients with health insurance coverage will only pay the deductible, coinsurance or copay required by their health plan. Although Wabash General Hospital can assist with estimated charge information for services being sought, the health plan is the best source of information pertaining to what an insured patient will pay.
Patients without health insurance coverage may qualify for discounts or financial assistance. Please complete a Financial Assistance Application
