At the University of Miami Health System, we want you to be able to focus on what’s most important: getting and staying well. We also know that it can be difficult to understand the costs associated with receiving care.
That’s why we want to give our patients pricing information for common services and help them understand these costs. Our price estimator tool (see link below) provides pricing information for 300 standard procedures and services provided at UHealth.
While the costs listed on this site are the standard charges for a procedure, the price you pay may vary greatly. Your actual charge depends on:
- Your health condition: Costs related to your medical condition, complications, your diagnosis, complexity of treatment, and other factors.
- Insurance coverage: Each health plan may have a different deductible (the amount you pay before your insurance company pays), out-of-pocket maximum and co-pay. We encourage you to contact your insurance company before receiving care to be sure you understand what you will need to pay.
- Negotiated charge: A negotiated charge is the reduced amount the hospital has agreed to be paid from your health insurance company for a particular service.
- Eligibility for financial assistance.
As a result, these price estimates are not a guarantee of what you may pay. The amount you owe will be on your final bill and may be higher or lower than the estimate provided.
Also, physician’s professional charges may not be included in the estimate. This is the amount charged for your doctor’s time. This fee may be sent to you in a separate bill.
The best way to understand what you will pay for care is to work with your insurer and our dedicated Patient Benefit Advisors team.
If your service or procedure, or your insurer, is not included in the price estimator tool, or if you have questions about your estimate, please reach out to our Patient Benefit Advisors team at 305-326-6486.
After you receive your care: You may also request an itemized statement and explanation of charges for services rendered at all locations and financial assistance by calling Patient Financial Services at 305-243-2900.
