The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires all hospitals to make their charges (prices) readily available on the internet to promote price transparency for patients.
Determining your total cost
MD Anderson is committed to helping patients better understand their financial responsibility and working with them to make sure they can maximize their insurance benefits.
While we believe in price transparency, we know everyone’s financial situation and treatment plan is unique and may be affected by your diagnosis and if you do or do not have insurance coverage. The charges listed for a service are not what you may actually pay after adjustments are made for your insurance provider or other third-party payor.
Creating estimates in MyChart
You can use MyChart.mdanderson.org and the MyChart mobile app to create your own estimates for more than 300 common services using your insurance coverage information to calculate expected payment. If you are a self-pay patient, you may also create an estimate to better understand your financial responsibility.
Charge information is based on historical data and is an estimate of charges for the service(s), excluding changes that may arise.
Estimate information is based on historical charges for this service(s). The estimate may not include all professional fees or additional tests required for your care. Your final bill will include charges for the actual services you receive.
We encourage you to contact your insurance company to review details of your coverage. This may help you better understand which charges will be your responsibility to pay.
Guests can create estimates in MyChart by going to my.mdanderson.org/MyChart/GuestEstimates.
