CarePricer Medical Expense Estimator
Crozer-Keystone Health System offers patients CarePricer, a tool which estimates how much patients can expect to pay out-of-pocket for hospital services based on their insurance coverage and other factors. With CarePricer, patients can be provided with more accurate information that they can then use to plan their care and even decide on a hospital that best meets their needs.
How CarePricer Works
CarePricer calculates a patient’s out-of-pocket responsibility by combining information from the health system’s Contract Management tool (payer contracts), historic charges, service line category, procedures/tests and patient benefits. CarePricer can also provide estimates for patients without insurance coverage.
Using this tool, trained Crozer-Keystone representatives can provide patients with a written estimate stating how much they can expect to pay for both inpatient hospital care and outpatient hospital services and testing, such as X-rays or MRIs. The tool applies only to hospital services and does not calculate costs for professional (physician) fees.
