The Cost of Services

NYC Health + Hospitals facilities are committed to providing you with as much information as possible about our charges. The information on the link below contains the charges for all services and items provided by the hospital.

The charges are uniform for all patients served by the hospital. However, the hospital charges rarely reflect the expected out-of-pocket expense for a specific hospital service, nor do they reflect the actual payment that the hospital will receive for those services. Your own charges and out-of-pocket expenses will depend on one or more of the following:

  • the actual patient care services received
  • the terms of your insurance coverage, including your specific co-insurance, co-payment and deductible, and/or
  • your eligibility for financial assistance
