GCMH Estimated Average Charges for Frequent Procedures
Hospital rates in Maryland are controlled and regulated much like the electric company or other public utilities. Patient charges at Garrett County Memorial Hospital are NOT set by the hospital itself, but are established directly by the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission which is an arm of state government. Therefore, hospital charges can vary, due to geographic location, operating costs, volumes, case severity and the like.
Garrett County Memorial Hospital prides itself on typically being one of the lowest charge-to-patient hospitals in the state overall. So please be advised that basing a decision to utilize any hospital on a single or individual test/exam/room rate/item, etc. can be misleading when you look at the total/cumulative bill. Further, your specific charges can be affected by your own unique personal factors ranging from other medical conditions or illnesses present; previous medical conditions; multiple diagnoses; and the like. Therefore, please be aware that these charges can only provide estimated average cumulative charges for the most frequent inpatient and outpatient procedures at Garrett County Memorial Hospital. The actual cost of your procedure may be higher or lower based on factors specific to your case. These estimated charges are updated quarterly and are based on actual patient charges incurred during the previous twelve months and are subject to change without notice.
These estimates reflect hospital charges only. They do not include physician or other provider fees that are billed separately from the hospital such as attending physician, surgeon, anesthesiologist, emergency room physician, radiologist, pathologist, consulting physician, etc.
Please note that the estimated cost is not a guarantee of insurance coverage. Please check with your insurance company regarding your specific benefits and coverage.
