Your actual costs will be different (higher or lower) than the estimates on this cost estimation site for various reasons, such as:
If the services you ultimately receive are different from the services selected during the estimation process (e.g., due to complications, secondary conditions, and/or other unknown factors). For example, for one person, a particular surgery may be relatively straight-forward, while another person can have unforeseen complications that will impact the cost.
- If the location of where your services are ultimately received differs from what is assumed during the estimation process.
- If your year-to-date benefit information changes from the time at which you receive the informational cost estimates and the ultimate time at which you receive care.
- If your healthcare provider’s contract with your insurance carrier changes.
- If you have a unique insurance plan design that is not currently supported by this tool.
