Price Transparency

Price Estimates

St Joseph’s Health is committed to pricing transparency to ensure our patients are fully aware of the cost of their medical care and their estimated financial obligation prior to receiving care. We can supply price estimates for most of the health care services we provide at our hospitals and outpatient locations.

For an estimate price of services, please call 973-754-2150 and select option 2. When calling, please have the patient’s name, address, and phone number available. You will also need to supply the procedure or service in question, current procedural terminology (CPT) codes (if available), and the insurance plan/policy number (if any) you will have at the time of services.

Hours: Monday through Friday 8:30am to 4:30 pm

Please note that price estimates are only “estimates” and may vary if additional services are provided or if complications arise. Prices may vary from patient to patient, depending on the services and patient’s insurance plan. 

Hospital Charges

St. Joseph’s Health provides our current and prospective patients with information on our standard charges for all items and services provided by the hospital. These charges are maintained in a large file called a hospital chargemaster.

It is important to know that the hospital’s standard “charge” for a service is not the same as what you may owe. The “charge” is the amount billed for an item or service which is billed to your insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, or directly to the patient if the patient does not have third-party insurance. A patient’s financial responsibility  is based on insurance coverage, deductible, co-insurance, and co-pay.

If a patient is uninsured, he or she may qualify for financial assistance through St. Joseph’s Financial Assistance Program. For more information please click here.

All professional charges (surgeons, radiologists, anesthesiologists, pathologists, and emergency room physician, etc.) are billed separately and are not included in the hospital’s charges.

If you need additional information, our Patient Access Department is available at 973-754-2150 option 2 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
