Welcome Mammoth Hospital Price Transparency.
Federal law requires Mammoth hospital to make public a list of standard charges for the items and services we provide. This list must include gross charges, payer-specific negotiated charges, the minimum and maximum negotiated charge and the cash discount price for all items and services and services packages.
Please note that standard charges shown do not necessarily reflect the amount that a patient will pay for the services rendered. Actual cost to the insurer and/or patient, as well as the out-of-pocket amount for which a patient will be directly responsible, are determined by several factors not in the exclusive control of Mammoth Hospital.
We understand that health care costs, billing and insurance can be confusing. To obtain the most accurate estimate of patient out of pocket costs, it is strongly recommended that patients contact your insurer to request an estimate. We are available to address patient questions at 760-934-1832. To obtain the most accurate estimate possible, the patient’s insurance information, if any, as well as a detailed description of the requested service (physician order preferred) are necessary.
By accessing the list at the below link, I hereby acknowledge that I have read and am aware of the above information and recognize that this list cannot be used as a single source for determining actual cost to any payer, including insurers, employers, or patient out-of-pocket responsibility.
