Hospitals are required to put their standard charges in a machine readable format on the internet at least annually. We have done so with this file. However, to make this more useful to our patients we prefer you contact 228-3511. Your call will be returned within 48 hours. A person will be able to help you estimate out of pocket responsibilities for the care you need. This is how FMDH wants to provide more consumer friendly communication of our charges, including for drugs and biologicals, to help our patients understand what their estimated potential financial liability might be for services they obtain at the hospital, and to enable our patients to compare charges for similar services across hospitals there are also links provided below.
