How Parkside Psychiatric Hospital & Clinic Can Help You Understand Your Cost of Care
When you need mental health care, you may wonder how much your treatment will cost. Parkside’s Business Office staff is available to provide individualized cost estimates and help you understand your insurance information.
If you have health insurance, it is best to first contact your insurance provider about understanding your responsibilities and costs. Most insurance providers offer estimates for your out-of-pocket costs based on your plan's specific benefits. Your insurance provider may also have information to help you compare price service options for the healthcare providers available to you.
Parkside Psychiatric Hospital & Clinic also provides patients with out-of-pocket cost estimates based on your treatment need and your insurance carrier/plan. To discuss this with the Business Office, call 918-588-8850.
Like all healthcare providers and hospitals, Parkside Psychiatric Hospital & Clinic has agreements with many insurance companies that determine the amount we will be paid. Our team will verify your insurance coverage and benefits, including your plan's required co-payments, deductible cost, co-insurance and maximum out-of-pocket cost specified in your plan. We can also discuss your payment options.

Now Available: Current Charges
Beginning January 1, 2019, the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) require hospitals to be more transparent regarding the cost of care. This "Inpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule" states that hospitals must provide a listing of their current standard charges, including a description for the item or service associated with each charge, for every item and service provided by the hospital. CMS additionally requires hospitals to list their standard charges by Diagnosis-Related Group (DRGs).
Parkside Psychiatric Hospital & Clinic believes in the need to educate patients on the cost of health care services. However, it is important to note that these numbers do not represent what patients will actually owe after a hospital stay or other service.
A hospital's charges are based on its unique range of services, adoption of new technologies, patient demographics, and other factors. There is also a difference between "charges" and "costs":
Charges are the full retail price for hospital or hospital outpatient services.
The discount price is a lower rate that may be negotiated with payers ("contractual rate" or "allowable rate") or with patients ("self-pay discounts").
The final patient cost is the individual patient& financial responsibility (your cost for services based on your benefit coverage and the discounted price).
Charges shown on the pricing lists provided do not represent payments or any specific/individual patient responsibility. Your financial responsibility will vary depending on your health insurance plan. Also, fees for doctor services may be billed separately. Your charges may vary based on the specific care you receive.
Parkside Psychiatric Hospital & Clinic will continue to improve how we share information regarding our charges and the cost of your care. As you plan for your current or near-future health care needs, be sure to contact your insurer and the Parkside Business Office with any questions.
