Price Transparency – No Surprise Billing
Below is the link to the charges used by Gove County Medical Center. This list of charges reflects the standard charges for inpatient and outpatient services. These charges are the same for all patients, but the patient’s financial responsibility for services provided may vary, depending upon payment plans negotiated with individual health insurers as well as reimbursement schedules set by public payers such as Medicare and Medicaid/Kancare. These charges do not include items or services which may be billed separately such as professional fees for ER and specialty clinic providers, lab, diagnostic services, anesthesia, pharmacy, etc.
- The list of charges does not constitute a contract.
- Regulations require annual publishing of our charges; therefore, this list is as current as the last update.
- While this document outlines standard base charges, these are not necessarily charges a patient will see.
- Charges are subject to change at any time.
