Understanding the Cost of Your Care
Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical Center is committed to helping you make informed health care choices.
Patients seeking a more accurate view of the potential costs of their care can use this secure, online pricing tool. Search from a collection of the most common health procedures. New procedures are regularly being added to the list.
This tool requires the patient to enter personal information, select a medical procedure from the list and enter specifics about their insurance. The online tool calculates a price. However, the calculation might still vary from the final cost a patient sees on a bill.
Please note that what is charged for a service usually does not reflect your out-of-pocket responsibility as many other factors typically affect your bill.
For a clearer picture, we encourage patients to reach out to our Financial Navigators, who are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at 888-835-5850.
Please have the following information available, so that we can provide you the most accurate estimate possible:
- Health Insurance Information
- Procedure (CPT) code or description of medical procedure – This code is a five digit code used by all hospitals, physicians and insurance companies to identify a type of service or procedure.
