Kootenai Health supports the intent of 2019 IPPS Final Rule by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) related to Price Transparency and the continued effort to educate patients on cost of health care and patient financial responsiblilties.
The information provided in the link below is a comprehensive list of charges for each inpatient and outpatient service or item provided by the Kootenai Health hospital facility, also known as a chargemaster. It is not a helpful tool for patients to comparison shop between hospitals or estimate what health care services are going to cost them out of their own pocket. For information about the cost of your care, please contact our patient estimate line (208) 625-4484 for a personalized cost estimate.
Office hours for Patient Estimating Service staff are 8am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday
The standard charge amount listed is not the amount that Kootenai Health is paid from Medicare, Medicaid or insurance companies. Actual payment to Kootenai Health and physicians are significantly reduced based on government regulations and negotiated insurance contracts.
