Patient Services Pricing and Estimates

Last Updated Thursday, February 02, 2012 3:08:06 PM


As a service to patients, El Camino Hospital provides price estimates for many of the most commonly requested medical services and diagnostic tests performed at the hospital and its affiliates.

While we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our price estimates, the costs associated with medical care and diagnostic testing can vary substantially, depending on each individual's medical needs and circumstances. We cannot determine in advance the exact total cost of a procedure, because we cannot anticipate all of the charges that may be incurred in the course of treatment. As a result, the final bill may be greater than or less than the estimate provided. El Camino Hospital makes no guarantees regarding the accuracy of the pricing information posted here and shall not be held liable for any inaccuracies.

How do we obtain our estimates?

We obtain data from the most recent year to determine pricing on our most common procedures and inpatient stays.

What is not included in your estimate: The estimates provided here include only charges related to your hospital bill. Your physician and other physicians providing services related to your services will bill you separately. These physicians may include anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists and other specialists. Independent lab and radiology services--that is, ones not directly associated with El Camino Hospital, but which may be used by your physician or other physicians who provide care to you--may also bill you separately. If you have questions about those bills, please call the telephone numbers on their statements for assistance.

The portion of your bill that is your responsibility is commonly referred to as your "out-of-pocket" expense. Out-of-pocket expenses are different for every patient and depend on individual insurance policies. To view the average "out-of-pocket" expenses, see Average Out-Of-Pocket Costs for Insured Patients or Average Out-Of-Pocket Costs for Uninsured or Self-Pay Patients.
