An estimate is the predicted amount you will pay for a medical service based on your insurance and what patients have been charged in the past. The estimate is made before your health plan has processed a claim for that service. You could be charged more than the estimate depending if you get additional services during your visit that were not anticipated.
How is the estimate calculated?
The estimate is calculated in good-faith based on the information known at the time the estimate was created. This amount is an estimate only and in no way a quote or guarantee of the amount that you will owe or what the charges for the service will be. Your final cost(s) could be higher or lower. We try our best to give you an accurate estimate. However, many factors go into the final cost like services performed and your unique insurance benefits (deductible, copay, coinsurance, out-of-pocket maxes, and network coverage). Benefits and eligibility are subject to change and are not a guarantee of payment. Please contact your insurance company to confirm how your costs will be calculated.
