Average prices for common adult procedures are available to assist in making an informed decision about the cost of care at a John C. Lincoln Health Network facility. The "Average Charge" represents a blend of hospital based and outpatient based procedure charges.
Our estimated prices do not include physicians' fees. For example, your surgeon, radiologist, anesthesiologist, emergency physician or the other physicians treating you during the hospital stay may bill you separately for services.
As you review this site for procedure costs, it is important to understand that your procedure price may vary based on pre-existing health conditions, the exact procedure performed, length of surgery time, and the length of stay in the hospital.
