Mary Free Bed Chargemaster
Our chargemaster is similar to a manufacturer’s suggested retail price list. It’s the retail charge for each service delivered, as well as supplies used while delivering rehabilitation care. Everything is included, from prescription drugs to therapy and much more. These charges are tracked during your treatment and compiled to determine your bill.
Our rates are updated, typically on an annual basis, to best represent what retail price is needed for us to operate the hospital and provide care. We look at salaries and wages for our expert staff as well as overhead, which includes utilities, food and other services needed to operate the hospital. We also plan for purchases of sophisticated technology so you have access to leading-edge rehabilitation.
The standard charges shown in the files below will likely not reflect the amount paid by your insurance company. Each insurance company has a contract with us to pay us at a discount off the retail price. Discounts range from zero percent to 100 percent for those patients who qualify for free, charity care. The final amount paid by you is determined by your particular insurance type and contract.
If you don’t have commercial insurance or are not covered by a government health care plan (Medicare, Medicaid, etc.), please contact our Patient Financial Services department prior to admission to talk about charges, alternative pricing and payment options. We have plans that can help.
