Patient Estimates

Disclaimer

The estimate you receive will be for today only, if you proceed with the service at Houston Methodist, you may be given a new estimate with more accurate cost and out of pocket information. This notice is not a guarantee of the total charges that may be billed, the amount covered by your insurance plan or the amount you may be responsible for. The estimate is based on the expectation that the procedures or your recovery period will not be complicated or lengthened by unforeseeable factors, and this estimate does NOT include costs for an extended observation or inpatient stay. Please note this is an ESTIMATE ONLY and NOT A FINAL BILL. We cannot always determine the exact amount you may owe until the service is completed and charges for any procedures, tests, imaging services, supplies and medications are added to your account. After the service is completed, your insurance carrier(s) will be billed. Depending on outstanding claims and/or network benefits, the remaining balance may be higher or lower than the estimate provided. After we receive the insurance payment, we will deduct your deposit from the remaining balance. Any additional balance still owed will be patient responsibility. This estimate does not include charges from any independent contractors. Additional imaging or specialty charges may or may not be calculated at the time the good faith estimate is created. You may receive separate statements from surgeons, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists and other physicians for other services not billed by Houston Methodist. Questions or assistance regarding their billing processes should be directed to their offices.
