Estimate My Cost

Onslow Memorial is committed to providing transparent pricing information for healthcare services performed in our hospital and clinics.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will begin requiring hospitals and health systems to disclose all standard charges beginning January 1, 2021. Onslow Memorial Hospital has developed a Patient Shopping Tool, calleEstimate My Cost™, which allows current and potential patients to create their own accurate out-of-pocket price estimates anytime, anywhere.

In compliance with the CMS Hospital Price Transparency rule effective on 01/01/2021, you can download a file which contains a complete listing of our standard charges. Please click here to access these documents. This list is current as of October 1, 2021 and is updated quarterly.

Health insurance is complicated. We are here to help.

  • We know you are going to have questions about the costs related to hospital treatment. We want to provide information that helps you plan ahead.
  • We recognize some people are facing higher out-of-pocket costs than they used to. We also know different plans have different cost-sharing amounts.

You deserve the best possible information about what you should expect to pay.

  • You should have meaningful information about your options for medical treatment and what your out-of-pocket cost will likely be.
  • Your health plan (or health insurance) is a key partner in any discussion about your expected costs because these costs depend on features of your plan, where you are in your deducible, and what type of cost-sharing you have for a particular procedure.
  • It is likely that cost estimates may change if your course of treatment changes.
  • Additionally, estimates may be impossible in emergency situations because it is hard to predict at the onset of an emergency the exact course of care that a patient will need.

Some bills will not come from the hospital.

  • You may receive bills directly from physicians or labs that do not work for our hospital.
  • We will work with you to understand these bills to the best of our abilities; however, you may need to contact those providers directly.
