At Cass County Memorial Hospital, we agree that transparency about the cost of health care is important. Listed below are several resources to help patients understand and compare costs.

Obtain a Cost Estimate

For the most accurate estimate of the cost of care, patients can contact Cass County Memorial Hospital at FinancialCounseling@casshealth.org or call 712-250-8041 for assistance in understanding the charges and related costs for a procedure or visit. You will need to provide some basic information, which can be found on the Financial Assistance and Billing Page.

The estimates tool from Cass County Health System allows you to obtain an out-of-pocket cost estimated for selected services and/or items. If you have a current MyChart account, you can access there or use our guest services to obtain.

Cass County Memorial Hospital Standard Charges

To improve price transparency, all U.S. hospitals and health systems are required to provide lists of standard hospital charges ― also called a chargemaster ― so patients can compare prices across hospitals. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind as you view the list of standard charges for all hospital items and services.

  • These charges are rarely the price that patients pay. The chargemaster lists the dollar amount set for each service prior to insurance contract/benefit plan discounts or self-pay discounts being applied, so the price patients pay tends to be less than the standard charge.
  • Hospital charges differ from patient to patient for the same service depending upon variations in treatment.
  • Patients who are eligible for financial assistance also receive additional discounts.
  • Items included in a charge vary across hospital systems. For example, what’s included in one hospital’s charge for room and board may differ from other hospital’s charge ― some hospitals bundle services together into a single charge that others may list separately.
  • Looking at various hospital charges does not provide any indication of quality of service and outcomes.

Cass County Memorial Hospital Average Charges by Type of Patient Group

All hospitals and health systems also are required to provide a listing of average charges by types of patient groups, referred to as MS-DRGs (Medicare Severity Diagnosis Related Groups). Patients can view similar listings posted by different hospitals, which provide a more direct comparison of charges than the standard charges in the chargemaster. View the list of average charges by type of patient group (MS-DRGs).

Cass County Memorial Hospital Shoppable Services Prices

All hospitals and health systems also are required to post a list of at least 300 Shoppable Services along with the corresponding prices for each of those services. Each of these Shoppable Services includes the following amounts: Gross Charge, Discounted Cash Price, Payer-Specific Negotiated Charges, De-Identified Minimum Negotiated Charge, and De-Identified Maximum Negotiated Charge.

As with the list of standard hospital charges discussed above, the prices on the primary care procedures list represent the standard amount for each service prior to insurance contract/benefit plan discounts or self-pay discounts being applied. What a patient actually pays will depend on their unique benefit plan terms.
