Pana Community Hospital is committed to being transparent about our charges. The information provided below contains a comprehensive listing of our charges for services provided by the hospital, also known as our charge master. These prices are updated on an annual basis and are subject to change. Price updates throughout the year will not be reflected in the summary and detailed charge listings below.
In determining your individual expenses for upcoming services, we recommend that you please contact our Registration Coordinator at (217) 562-2131 to request an individualized estimate. The charge master listing below is not a complete tool for patients to comparison shop between hospitals or to estimate what health care services are going to cost them out of their own pocket. Your own charges and out-of-pocket expenses will depend on the actual patient care services you receive, the terms of your insurance coverage, and/or your eligibility for financial assistance. Please understand that patient estimates are not a guarantee of actual charges. The price estimate is only for the quoted procedure known prior to service and may not include items such as separate physician fees, additional tests or procedures not on the price quote, or for procedures your doctor might add while you are having services performed. Our Patient Financial Services Department will also be able to assist you with information regarding payment arrangements and/or financial assistance eligibility.
Independent practitioners providing services at Pana Community Hospital such as, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, and specialty clinic practitioners, bill for their services separately and are responsible for their own participation agreements. Independent practitioners may not be participating providers in the same networks as the hospital. If you will be receiving services from an independent practitioner, we strongly encourage you to contact your insurer for participating provider information.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a final rule that requires hospitals to post their standard charges effective January 1, 2019 in a machine readable format on the internet and update it at least annually. That detailed listing of charges can be found at the following link.
