Price Estimation

St. Tammany Health System is committed to providing meaningful information to our patients related to their financial obligations for healthcare services.

What is the difference between charge and cost?

Charge: This is the full undiscounted price of medical services consistently and uniformly charged to patients before applying any contractual allowances, discounts or deductions.
Cost: This is the price of medical services to patients after applying any insurance payments, contractual allowances, discounts or deductions. This is the estimated patient responsibility.

The Cost Estimation tool located below will provide you an estimate of the out-of-pocket costs based upon your individual insurance plan/policy. Using your current policy information along with the anticipated procedure, obtain an estimate of patient responsibility.
