Price Estimates

Learn about your potential billed charges and your expected out-of-pocket costs for IU Health services.

As you plan for elective care or the management of a chronic condition, knowing what costs to expect is an important part of being prepared.

  • For insured patients: Your real-time insurance benefits are applied to expected costs to determine the amount you are responsible for paying after insurance.
  • For uninsured patients: Your out-of-pocket costs are based on a discount for the amount generally billed for hospital services. Discounts are also given for IU Health employed physicians’ professional services.
