Factors Influencing Hospital Charges

Prices reflect not only the cost of a particular item or procedure, but all of the human and facility resources required to provide the care. Among the variables are the type of procedure you are undergoing, the cost of the technology used in your care, medical supplies, the wages and benefits of the staff providing your care, and your health insurance coverage.

Price is only one consideration in making decisions about health care and does not equate with quality and outcomes. As you make health care decisions for yourself and loved ones, we encourage you to get to know O’Connor Hospital and Bassett Healthcare Network by reviewing the wealth of information about our health system on this website, speaking with others about their care experience and speaking with the providers who may be involved in your care.
