Our goal at Franklin County Memorial Hospital is to provide patients with high quality care and the best possible hospital experience. We know medical costs can be very confusing and overwhelming. To make this process as transparent as possible, our hospitals will make available our current standard charges and in compliance with the Affordable Care Act [ Section 2719(e)of the Public Health Service Act].
We understand that publishing a general listing of prices will not meet all consumer’s needs. It is very important for you, as the consumer, to understand that standard charges may not be a relevant starting point for estimating what costs you may incur during an episode of care, and the amount actually paid by a patient will depend on that patient’s insurance coverage, policy provisions and other factors. Everyone’s case is different based on that patient’s medical condition. Therefore, we have financial counselors available upon request to provide information about standard charges; and to help determine if patients qualify for Federal and State assistance, and set up payment plans.
The charges displayed only include hospital charges and do not include charges that are billed separately by your physician or other professional fees. Furthermore, the actual amount paid by a patient will depend on that patient’s insurance coverage, as benefit plans vary greatly.

The hospital estimate will provide the patient with the following:
The information provided is a best estimate based on the information we currently have and is not a guarantee of what you will be charged or owe. Please understand that in many cases it is impossible to predict the final charges that will result as there are many variables involved in your actual services such as the length of time spent in surgery or recovery, specific equipment used, supplies and medications required, additional tests required by your physician, and/or any unusual special care or unexpected conditions or complications.
This estimate does not include any physician charges (e.g. office visits, emergency room fees, radiologist fees, pathologist fees, or other consulting physician fees, etc.). If you have insurance, your benefits will ultimately determine the amount you owe (including deductibles, co-pay, co-insurance, and out-of-pocket maximums). Patients are encouraged to contact their insurance provider directly for a full disclosure of benefits, allowable, and potential out of pocket expenses.
