Why are two different prices listed?
In some cases, tests or procedures can be performed at Spectrum Health inpatient (Butterworth or Blodgett) hospitals or an outpatient facility. Because it is less expensive to provide services in an outpatient setting, the prices are less when there is an outpatient option.
Will my bill be different than the price listed here?
The amount you owe may vary due to a number of circumstances:
- Additional testing, medications, services or procedures ordered
- The procedure planned may not be the procedure performed based on your physician's assessment
- Pre-existing health factors such as obesity, diabetes or smoking may impact your medical needs
- If you have insurance, the type of insurance you have, your deductibles, coinsurance or out-of-pocket limits will determine your final Spectrum Health bill.
To get the most accurate information, contact your insurance company to understand your actual financial obligation for a test or procedure.
