At Sparrow, we support healthcare transparency and providing our Patients with the information they need to understand the costs of their care and make informed decisions.
Our Patient Financial Services Department can help you estimate your out-of-pocket costs based on your planned procedure and specific insurance coverage. Call 517.364.6060 to start the estimate process.
To get an accurate estimate, prior to your call, please gather the following:
- Name of your Physician and specifics for the procedure to be performed, such as a CPT code or DRG, and if there is anything unique about your situation that could impact the price, such as a longer than normal stay.
- What “other” costs are likely to be incurred, such as radiologist, physician, or anesthesiology fees.
- Your health insurance card information including your policy type (HMO, PPO, POS), policy holder’s name, group name, group number, policy number and your insurance company’s phone number.
- Policy holder’s personal information including Social Security Number and date of birth.
Anyone seeking care at Sparrow not covered by insurance or who cannot afford their deductible or coinsurance amounts can access Sparrow's Community Financial Aid program. In 2012, Sparrow provided more than $34 million in charity care and uncollectible accounts.
Sparrow is committed to our 118 year mission of improving the health of the people in our communities by providing quality, compassionate care to everyone, every time, regardless of ability to pay.
