Our Billing Process
Good Faith Estimates
Under the law, MMH needs to give patients who are self-pay or whose insurance doesn't cover certain services an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items are provided.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any health care items or services upon request or when scheduling such items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment and hospital fees.
- If you schedule a health care item or service at least three business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within one business day after scheduling. If you schedule a health care item or service at least 10 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within three business days after scheduling. You can also ask any health care provider or facility for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you do, make sure the health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within three business days after you ask.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more for any provider or facility than your Good Faith Estimate from that provider or facility, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate and the bill. Read more.
Protection Against Surprise Medical Bills
When you get emergency care or are treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital, you are protected from balance billing. In these cases, you shouldn't be charged more than your plan's copayments, coinsurance and/or deductible. Read more.

Margaret Mary Health Charges

MMH also provides a comprehensive document, known as the MMH Chargemaster, which outlines the costs of MMH’s billable services and items. While the costs listed on the Chargemaster can help you get a rough idea of what your charges will be, please be aware the amount listed may not represent the full cost of your procedure. Additional services, such as medications, supplies, room charges, diagnostic tests and professional fees, will be billed separately. The hospital’s charges are the same for all patients, but a patient’s responsibility and out-of-pocket expenses (i.e. deductible, co-insurance, copays, etc.) may vary based on what your insurance company will pay. Uninsured or underinsured patients should contact our patient financial advocates to determine whether they qualify for discounts. Understand that few patients will pay the full charge amount listed because of insurance coverage. To get a better understanding of all potential costs, we recommend you contact our Patient Financial Counselors at 812.933.5441 for a more accurate estimate.
