Price Estimates

Call for more information: 770-219-7678

We offer price estimates for most services and procedures to all patients, so you can plan ahead for your financial health along with your physical and mental health.

What is an estimate?

Estimates typically reflect a range of what costs can be predicted for the services you receive from the hospital, and they are based on information you can provide. The estimate quoted is for hospital charges only and is based off benefits provided by your insurance company for the surgery or procedure your physician has scheduled for you. You may receive additional bills for pathology, anesthesia, physician services and any other service needed that are not reflected in the estimate.

Estimates can be provided for several types of care such as surgical procedures, radiology and cardiology exams, and rehab care as well as other diagnostic imaging and invasive hospital procedures.

How do I request an estimate?

You can request an estimate by contacting our Patient Access Service Center at 770-219-7678. A representative is available to assist you Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. – 7p.m.

What do I need to request an estimate?

You can help make sure your estimate is as accurate as possible by telling your doctor or provider that you plan to request an estimate from the hospital and need information like:

  • The technical name of the surgery, procedure or other service you’re receiving
  • Associated CPT codes and insurance codes
  • Any necessary tests or service you will need before or after
  • Insurance policy information including the payer/plan name, subscriber information, and policy number

Transparency Disclosure

Northeast Georgia Health System complies with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services rules regarding price transparency by providing a machine-readable file that includes a list of standard charges.  It’s important to note that these charges do not reflect what insurance providers and patients are typically responsible for paying. We always recommend contacting our Patient Access Service Center to request an estimate for a specific surgery, procedure or service to better understand your financial responsibility.

If you have a fever and cough or difficulty breathing, these steps will help you find the care you need and limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our region:

  • Call before you come

    Please call your doctor's office or an urgent care clinic for advice about where you should go for treatment.

  • Call 9-1-1 for emergencies

    Calling 9-1-1 is always the fastest and most efficient way to get proper treatment for medical emergencies.

  • Consider staying home and taking advantage of an E-Visit

    When symptoms strike, connect with a provider through an E-Visit instead of traveling to the urgent care or the doctor’s office.

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, so the best way to avoid infection is to avoid exposure. Here are simple steps you can take to lower your risk of catching or spreading illness:

  • Wear a mask – a cloth face cover can protect other people in case you are infected. Everyone should wear a cloth face cover in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household. Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Avoid close contact – maintain 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household. If someone in your household is sick, maintain 6 feet of distance from them as well.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching tissues.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces to help prevent the spread of germs
  • Monitor your health daily –  Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.

In late January, NGHS created a Coronavirus Task Force including leaders from across the system to begin preparing for the possibility that our facilities and staff may see patients with COVID-19.

We have been following the guidance of the CDC and are working to ensure staff are diligent in following standard protocol to ask patients about their travel history. In the event that additional preparation is needed, this team will move swiftly to follow any new guidance.

About COVID-19 Testing:

NGHS has the ability to coordinate testing at some of our locations. Please call your doctor's office or urgent care clinic for advice about whether testing is right for you. Recently we implemented a new E-Visit specific to the Coronavirus.
