Price Estimates & Transparency
Altru recognizes the importance of patients’ access to information and is committed to providing useful price information for our patients in order to help patients better anticipate out-of-pocket responsibilities for specific services or courses of treatment. To help determine your out-of-pocket costs when planning for your healthcare, Altru's online tool allows you to get a quick and personalized estimate for common procedures and services.
Estimates are used to get an idea of what your financial obligations could be however, estimates are not a guarantee of the exact amount you will be responsible for paying. There are many different services that could be ordered by your provider that may not be included in the estimate and the price may be lower or higher than the estimate states. Your care will always be based on your specific needs and your services could change during your treatment which would affect your original estimate amount. Insurance plans can also affect out-of-pocket costs and estimates may not include any changes to insurance coverage or benefits (such as deductibles, co-insurance, co-pays, etc.). Altru encourages you to contact your insurance company directly to determine if the services are a covered benefit and to explain what your financial responsibility is as it relates to your specific insurance coverage.
