The Missouri Hospital Association designed this site for consumers interested in learning more about the hospitals and health systems that serve Missourians. The reports from MHA provide information about the care consumers can expect to receive at Missouri's hospitals, as well as the hospitals' significant economic contributions to their communities. Today's consumers of medical services want more information about the costs associated with their care. If you have health insurance coverage, the Treatment Cost Estimator will provide an estimate of out-of-pocket costs you may incur for your medical treatment. Through this interactive application, you can research the estimated amounts you will pay for care after your insurance for office visits, surgery and prescriptions is considered.
For consumers who are responsible for paying for their own hospital services, MHA's report on hospital charges also provides a range of hospital charges and amounts collected by region for the common inpatient procedures performed and medical conditions treated at Missouri's 109 adult acute care hospitals. Consumers can use this information when contacting local hospitals about their options for paying for medical services.
All hospitals have policies for the provision of charity care to low-income, uninsured patients. In Missouri, each hospital defines its charity care policies to meet the unique needs of its community. The Missouri Hospital Association Board of Trustees adopted a set of principles to guide the development of hospital charity care policies by which all Missouri's hospitals have been asked to comply.
To learn about your hospital's charity care practices, contact the hospital's patient accounts department.
