Price Transparency

At Howard County Medical Center (HCMC), we are committed to transparency and helping patients understand healthcare pricing.  We also understand that you may need to determine how much a procedure or service will cost prior to receiving the service.

In an effort to show our commitment to transparency, click here to access our pricing tool.  This tool includes the following:

All Services Items:  Detail on all items and services performed at Howard County Medical Center in a machine readable format. 

Shoppable Items:  Detail on 300 of the most commonly provided procedures at Howard County Medical Center.  This option prompts you to select from the list of insurances that we are contracted with and then the procedure you select to view.  You can simply start typing the first word of the procedure and a list of procedures to select from will appear.  Only the 300 most commonly provided procedures will be displayed under this view.

Chargemaster:  A listing of all charge items in the chargemaster for Howard County Medical Center.

This shoppable and all services price list is based on information we have gathered from our claims and insurance payment files.  This is not a guarantee of what you will be charged.  Your actual charges may differ from the estimated charges for many reasons, including the seriousness of your medical condition, actual time the procedure takes and the services and supplies that you receive.  If you have insurance, your benefits will ultimately determine the amount you owe (including deductibles, co-pay, co-insurance, and out-of-pocket maximums).  

The shoppable or all services price list was developed to help you determine the potential cost for services only.  If you proceed with services at Howard County Medical Center, you may be given a new estimate with more accurate cost and out-of-pocket information.  Please contact Patient Accounts at (308) 754-4421 for more information.
