Current Standard Charges for Services
On August 2, 2018, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule (CMS-1694-F) requiring that all hospitals “make available a list of their current standard charges via the Internet in a machine readable format, and to update this information at least annually.” UVMHN Porter Medical Center is pleased to provide this information to our patients, as we recognize that making good health care decisions requires having all of the facts and understanding your options.
In compliance with the new federal regulation, this price list contains our hospital standard charges as of January 1, 2019. In addition to the required list, we have also chosen to provide our physician standard charges. Standard charges are the same for all patients, however financial responsibility may vary based on a patient’s individual medical insurance plan as well as our organization’s contracts with insurance companies. Uninsured or international patients may be eligible for discounts. Benefit Advisors, Financial Advocates and Customer Service Specialists are available to assist all patients early in the process to identify eligibility for additional financial assistance and to estimate out of pocket expenses.
Please note that additional charges will apply for professional fees, including but not limited to:
- Anesthesia Business Consultants
- Middlebury Radiology
- Dr. Carl Petri’s and Dr. Vasiliou’s Office (General Surgeon)
