About the consumer guide to healthcare prices

At Baylor Scott & White Health, we understand the challenges and barriers the healthcare market poses. To make your healthcare experience easier, we continuously work on finding and building tools and resources that may help you manage your healthcare expenses, feel confident in your choice for care and understand how to best use your plan benefits.

One resource is the patient-friendly consumer guide to Understanding Healthcare Prices, created by the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), the nation’s leading healthcare organization known to provide practical resources and insightful information on matters such as price transparency. HFMA's consumer guide may be an excellent starting point for most of our patients, offering different instructions and explanations for insured patients, uninsured patients, and Medicare beneficiaries to help you understand the costs associated with your care.

Although the guide was developed by HFMA to be distributed by hospitals, providers, and payers, and we have opted to post it on our website for your convenience, please reference HFMA’s website for the most up-to-date version.
