The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires all hospitals to make their standard charges 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 diagnosis, treatment options and insurance coverage. The standard charges for items and services are not what you may actually pay after adjustments are made by 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 service estimates for more than 400 common services using your insurance coverage information to calculate expected payment. If you are a self-pay patient, you may create an estimate to better understand your financial responsibility.
These estimates, sometimes referred to as "shoppable service estimates," are 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.
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.
The Financial Clearance Center team is available to answer your questions about your estimate. They can guide you and give you information about insurance coverage, costs and payment options. You can reach the team by phone at 1-844-294-4322 or 713-792-4322, or you may send them a message in MyChart. They are available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. CT.
