What will a service cost me?

Cost estimates are currently available for most hospital-based testing and procedures scheduled in advance (see below). This is made possible through partnership with Availity, a national software company that evaluates each patient’s individual insurance plan to estimate his/her out-of-pocket responsibility.

Additional services will be added to the system throughout 2019.

  • EKGs
  • Sleep studies
  • Stress tests
  • Radiology services
  • Surgical procedures

Lab work is not included at this time.

What discounts are available?

With this estimation program, Horizon Health offers financial discounts up to 30 percent.

  • A 30 percent discount is applied to the patient’s portion of the fee if paid prior to, or the day of, the service.
  •  A 15 percent discount is applied to the patient’s portion of the fee if paid within 30 days of the invoice date.
  • At day 35, the bill is sent to Horizon Health’s payment partners to work with the patient to establish a payment plan.

Note that this new service will modify the registration process. Patient Services staff will now ask for co-pays, past balances, and projected patient responsibility amounts at the time of scheduling and/or time of service.
