You may request an estimate from the Patient Financial Services department which is located on the first floor of the Ochsner Medical Center.
What is usually included in a service estimate? Estimates are based on what specific procedures normally cost, including doctor and facility fees and supplies. Actual costs may vary because there is no way to predict exactly what services will be needed. Included in the estimates are anticipated fees for items such as room and board, operating rooms, anesthesia, surgeons, and when applicable, assistant surgeons. Charges such as pre-surgical consultations, tests and other supplies are not included in the estimate.
I have more questions about surgical estimates. Who can I call? Additional questions should be directed to Patient Financial Services Department located on the first floor of the main Clinic or you may call (504) 842-3815.
