Pricing & Estimates
Pricing & Estimates
For your convenience, we provide price estimates for many of the most commonly requested diagnostic tests and services requested at El Camino Hospital and with our affiliates.
While we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our price estimates, the costs associated with diagnostic testing and medical care vary, depending on the medical needs and circumstances of the individual.
Since we can’t anticipate all the charges associated with a course of treatment, we can’t determine the exact total cost of a procedure in advance. As a result, the final bill may differ from 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 We Obtain Our Estimates
We obtain data from the most recent year to determine pricing on our most common procedures and inpatient stays. The estimates provided include only charges related to your hospital bill. Doctors and other clinicians who provide services will bill you separately. These may include separate bills from:
- Anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists and other specialists.
- Independent lab and radiology services — those not directly associated with El Camino Hospital, but which may be used by your doctor.
If you have questions about those bills, please call the telephone numbers on their statements for assistance.
Out-of-Pocket Expense Estimates
The portion of your bill that’s your responsibility is commonly referred to as your out-of-pocket expense, which varies from person to person and depends on individual insurance policies.
