ContinueCARE Hospital at Palmetto Health Baptist is committed to pricing transparency for our patients and helping patients and their families to make informed healthcare decisions prior to their visit. We understand that pricing and billing for healthcare services can be confusing, so we are making our standard price lists available to consumers so they can better anticipate and understand their financial responsibilities. Please note that ContinueCARE Hospital at Palmetto Health Baptist only provides inpatient services.
The hospital’s prices are the same for all patients, regardless of insured status or type of insurance. However, a patient’s responsibility may vary depending on financial assistance as well as discounts negotiated with individual health insurers. The price lists also DO NOT include physician’s fees from your surgeon, attending physician, anesthesiologist, radiologist or other professional services. These offices will bill you separately for services and should be able to give you pricing information if you contact them directly. In addition, this price list only includes services provided at ContinueCARE Hospital at Palmetto Health Baptist. Any pricing for services provided by a different hospital where the patient may receive care during the LTACH stay can be obtained directly from that specific hospital. Finally, your final charges may vary based on the actual services provided, including various pharmacy and supply items, or pre-existing health conditions that may affect services provided.
