    Price Transparency

    Livingston Hospital is committed to price transparency, and the list of charges for inpatient and outpatient services is posted in compliance with the Affordable Care Act. The requirement to post hospital charges is intended to promote price transparency and assist patients in understanding their potential financial liability for services obtained at our hospital, and to allow comparison for similar services across hospitals. However, hospital charge masters are lengthy and complex documents which do not provide information at a level that is easy to understand for this purpose.

    The starting list of charges is the same for every patient. However, hospital prices can vary based on patient needs. Even though a similar test or procedure is performed, the price may differ due to the patient’s medical condition, length of time spent in surgery or recovery, complications requiring unanticipated procedures, kinds of medication needed, etc.

    Patients with health insurance coverage will only pay the deductible, coinsurance or copay required by their health plan. Although Livingston Hospital can assist with estimated charge information for services being sought, the health plan is the best source of information pertaining to what an insured patient will pay.

    Patients without health insurance coverage may qualify for discounts or financial assistance. Please complete a Financial Assistance Application or call the Business Office at 270-988-2299.

    For more information about the charge for your care and to obtain an estimate, please call the Business Office at 270-988-2299

    In addition, we have provided the following Shoppable Services file to assist the consumer in identifying in advance the standard charges associated with 300 services at the facility.

    Shoppable Services

    The information listed for each service reflects the following:

    • Standard Charge
    • Discounted Cash Price – the charge that applied to an individual who pays cash or cash equivalent.
    • Payer-specific negotiated charge – the charge that the hospital has negotiated with a third-party payor for the service.

    This information is provided to be a guide to determine anticipated charges. The information is not a contractual agreement between the hospital and the consumer. Individual costs will be based on specific services provided. We advise the consumer consult with their health insurer to confirm individual payment responsibilities and remaining deductible balances.
