SUNY Downstate Medical Center

University Hospital of Brooklyn

Hospital Charges

In an effort to ensure transparency related to healthcare costs, SUNY Downstate Medical Center is providing you with information to assist you in determining the cost of the medical services we provide and to help you make better informed healthcare decisions.

The information we provide on our website provides a general idea of the hospital prices for our most common inpatient, outpatient and diagnostic procedures.

It is important to note that what we listed here are average prices for medical procedures, which are subject to change.

The estimated average price is an approximate calculation of the total hospital prices for a specific inpatient, outpatient or diagnostic procedure. These prices may vary based on pre-existing conditions and the actual procedure performed, such as in the following situations:

  • Additional testing, medications, services or procedures that may be required.
  • Pre-existing factors that may impact your medical needs. Examples include obesity, smoking and diabetes.
  • Your physician may determine that a different procedure needs to be performed than originally planned.

Please note that these prices do not include physicians' fees, as these offices will bill you separately.

Examples of these include prices from your surgeon, anesthesiologist, pathologist, or radiologist. Please contact those offices directly for their price information.

Physicians who provide services at SUNY Downstate Medical Center may or may not participate with the same health care plans as SUNY Downstate Medical Center. Please check with the physician arranging your hospital services to determine the health care plans in which the physician participates or select the Affiliated Physicians link on the side bar.

Most importantly, the figures listed are not what you may pay out-of-pocket for the service/procedure listed. The amount you will owe depends on your insurance plan.

Coverage benefits can differ greatly from plan to plan. The amount of any co-pays, co-insurance or deductibles will be dependent on your specific insurance plan. If you have health insurance, you should contact your insurance company directly to determine what your financial obligation will be. You may be asked to provide a procedure code, which can be obtained from your physician's office.

Note: Any payments in addition to the insurance coverage, such as co-pays, deposits and other co-insurance amounts that are the responsibility of the patient, will be due at the time the services are provided. You should verify which services are covered by your insurance plan prior to receiving such services as any charges not covered by your insurance plan will be your responsibility.

Please recognize that you may receive more than one bill for services received at UHB such as physician, hospital and possible ambulance service.

If you would like more information including payment options or possible financial assistance, or have questions about a procedure or price that is not listed on our site, please contact our Patient Account Representatives as noted in the Billing Policy Summary section below.
