In order for our patients to gain a clear understanding of the cost of healthcare services and for an estimate for services performed, Boundary Community Hospital encourages patients to contact our Patient Financial Services, (PFS), department to speak to a patient representative.
The Patient Financial Services, (PFS), representatives can provide you information which includes an estimate of the cost of services and an estimate of your out-of-pocket expenses based on what we know about your current insurance benefits.
Please be aware, there are many variables that can impact your final out-of-pocket expenses. These variables may include, but are not limited to: length of time spent in surgery or recovery, supplies and medications needed, additional tests required by your physician, or any unexpected conditions that may arise.
Boundary Community Hospital, in accordance with these rules for pricing transparency, has provided our patients the ability to download hospital charges and pharmacy charges. As individual charge amounts are subject to change (i.e. they may increase or decrease over the course of the year), there is no guarantee that the charges shown in these files will match the charges billed. Charges are current only as of the date the data is linked to our website (this date is included at the top of each file).
To speak to a PFS representative you may call, 208-267-3141 extension 4244 or you may contact PFS on line by clicking here.
