Disclosure of Health Care Charges at Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics

A new federal law requires all hospitals to post their full charge amount for health care services on their web sites. It is important to note that we must list out the entire upfront charge. For most of our patients, this is not the amount you will be asked to pay.

For patients covered by a government or private insurance plan, your out-of-pocket cost is determined by that payor. All payors receive a discount off of the posted, full charge amount. The lower charge is called the “allowed amount.” Your out-of-pocket cost is then based on your insurance benefits. It may include a deductible amount, co-insurance or co-payment; or your insurance might pay all of the allowed amount for a service. You may contact us at hospitalbillingquestions@masongeneral.com if you have a question about your estimated cost for a specific service you need.

Financial assistance is available to all patients (with or without insurance) who qualify at Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics (MGH&FC). This qualification is based on your total income. For example, a single person with an annual income of less than $48,560 should quality for a discount on their out-of-pocket cost. Similarly, a family of four with an annual income of less than $100,400 should also qualify for a discount.
