Hospital Charges & Price Estimate

HSHS Central Illinois Division is committed to providing patients information that will assist them in making informed health care decisions and understanding the potential financial obligations related to their care. 

The information provided is a personalized estimate and not a guarantee of final billed charges.

Final billed charges may vary from hospital estimates for many reasons, among them are additional procedures ordered by the physician, patient’s medical condition, unknown circumstances or complications or final diagnosis. 

A change in the final billed charges may affect the amount the patient owes. 

When based on insurance, the patient portion is determined by the customer’s insurance plan as of the date of the estimate. 

Benefits and eligibility are subject to change and are not a guarantee of payment.  For those who do not currently have insurance, the patient portion may be eligible for an uninsured discount.


For more information, please review our Price Estimate Guide.

If you have any questions regarding this estimate, payment of your expected balance, eligibility for uninsured discount or other assistance, please contact our Customer Service team at 1-877-636-2261.

What You Need to Know

Estimates include services provided by HSHS Illinois Division hospitals.

Estimates do not include charges from independent physicians who are not employed by HSHS Illinois Division. Examples of independent physician charges include anesthesia, pathology, radiology and surgeon fees. This means you may be billed for hospital facility charges and separately billed for charges from other providers.

Price estimates may not reflect actual charges on the final bill. Actual charges will vary based on the patient's medical condition, unknown circumstances or additional treatment recommended by your physician. Patients with insurance should understand their insurance health benefits and out-of-pocket requirements which may affect their personal financial liability for anticipated health care services.

If you have concerns about paying for your services, we encourage you to apply for our financial assistance program by calling 1-877-636-2261.
