Understanding Your Costs

Pike County Memorial Hospital wants to help you understand the financial obligations and resources related to your medical care and services.

If you would like an estimate in advance for procedures or tests performed at PCMH, please call 573-754-5531 to speak to a Patient Accounts Representative.

When talking with our staff the following information is needed to prepare the most accurate estimate:

  • Patient contact information including name, address, phone number, and date of birth
  • Procedure or service (include CPT code on your physician order, if known)
  • If insured, insurance information including subscriber information, policy and group number

Please note the following important information about your estimate:

  • The estimate we provide will be based on information you have given us.
  • This estimate is for hospital costs only, which do not include physician or other professional fees that are billed separately by other providers.
  • The estimate will be a range of possible costs or an average cost, depending on your situation.
  • The actual amount you are billed may be more or less than the estimate we provide; the actual amount may vary, depending on any other health issues, medications, unexpected complications if they occur and other factors that may arise.
  • If you have insurance, please contact your health plan to make sure PCMH is in your plan's network, which gives you the greatest benefit; you also can get information about your specific benefit plan, such as whether the service you desire is covered in your plan and the amount of deductible or co-payment you may owe.

Thank you for choosing Pike County Memorial Hospital to fulfill your health care needs.

Please note:  follow the above steps to get a better understanding of your costs as opposed to using the "PCMH Price Listing". A representative at PCMH will be able to assist you with your cost estimate needs more accurately.
