2018 ANNUAL REPORT
Call in for Cost of Care Estimate
A new service can take away some of the guessing about how much your care will cost at NorthBay Healthcare.
You may now get a cost estimate on hospital outpatient surgical procedures, ancillary, and diagnostic services that NorthBay Healthcare and Solano Diagnostics Imaging offers by calling the Patient Price Estimate phone line for patients with single commercial carriers (excluding government insurance).
Rachel Bryant, manager of Patient Financial and Insurance services, said her team is trained to gather information about a patient’s insurance and proposed procedure and can produce a cost estimate for certain services as mentioned above.
Obviously, one size does not fit all, said Bryant. “Everyone has a different circumstance, so based upon the procedure, the insurance and the individual, the cost will vary. There are just too many variables.”
With that in mind, many individuals today are shopping around to make a decision on where to have their surgery. Not only will it help “shoppers” make medical decisions, but generating the estimates will also provide patients with a seamless care experience at NorthBay Healthcare.
Want an estimate? Call (707) 646-3490. Be prepared to share your insurance information and the CPT code/procedure name with the patient representative.
