Price TransparencyThe Centers for Medicare and Medicaid established guidance for hospitals to make available a list of their standard charges online. Community Hospital of Anaconda supports health care pricing transparency and tools that help patients and consumers evaluate what care is best for them and any related financial costs. Standard charges for CHA relevant to the CMS guidance for 2018 has been posted - click here for details. 2019 pricing will be posted here soon. Due to the widespread variation in health insurance coverage, it is difficult for facilities to provide specific out of pocket cost information to a patient without access to very detailed information about a patient's health insurance coverage. For information that would help you estimate the cost of your care or the amount you might owe for your care, please contact our Patient Access/Financial Assistance Department at 406-563-8552. Estimates are based on information provided by a prospective patient and do not include, among other things, additional tests or procedures, etc which may increase the charges related to the services provided.
