To assure transparency, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services require us to publish our Chargemaster standard fees, upon which patient billing is based. However, since most patients actually pay less than these published rates, we provide an Estimating Service to estimate rates based on your specific situation.

Chargemaster rates are for informational purposes only and are not reflective of final patient costs. Effingham Health System makes no guarantee of costs based on these published rates. All pricing is subject to change. Actual services may vary from those anticipated or provided for the estimate. Financial estimates provided to patients by Effingham Health System are not a guarantee of costs, given they are based on information provided by the patient and healthcare provider, and actual services and insurance coverage may vary.
