Care Cost Estimate
Beginning January 1, 2021, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
(“CMS”) requires hospitals to provide clear, accessible pricing
information online about the items and services they provide. Transparency
and clear communication are also a top priority for CaroMont Health, and
this information will make it easier for you to view and compare prices,
while estimating the cost of care before going to the hospital. The price
of care may vary based on your health insurance benefit plan.
CaroMont Health is a not-for-profit, integrated healthcare system that
serves the patients and communities in North Carolina and South Carolina.
CaroMont Health recognizes the importance of helping patients make informed
decisions about healthcare including charges for their care.
