As part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ efforts to improve transparency, Winneshiek Medical Center has published its standard hospital charges as well as pricing for Mabel Clinic.

Please note: Individual insurance plans affect what a patient pays and what a provider is reimbursed.  Standard charges typically do not represent what most patients pay for care.

Note: A hospital “charge” is not the same as “expected payment.” “Charge” is the amount billed for a service. Because each person’s case is different based on that patient’s medical condition, a given patient’s charge will not necessarily be the same as the average or median charge. Furthermore, the actual amount paid by a patient will depend on that patient’s insurance coverage. http://www.iowahospitalcharges.com/
