Charges & Price Transparency

At the bottom of this page, you will find button links that will help you find information you seek regarding standard charges and/or Healthcare Price Transparency with contracted insurance companies for both St. Margaret’s Health – Spring Valley and St. Margaret’s Health – Peru.

 

Charge information may be beneficial to patients who are comparing different healthcare organizations.

However, it is important to realize that charges vary from hospital to hospital and have different items within the charge itself. An example is a colonoscopy. Colonoscopy will have a charge, yet if the physician also removes polyps while performing the procedure, the charge for the colonoscopy will change to include that additional service. Therefore, it is important to remember that there are many things that can influence a standard charge that may be added later because of the patient’s needs during a procedure or service. Additionally, when using our Price Transparency tool, it is important to note that these may not be the amounts you will owe because these do not include any amounts covered by your insurer. 

St. Margaret’s Health is happy to share our information with you and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

If you are interested in determining what you will need to pay for a specific procedure or service, please call us at (815) 664-1477 and ask for the Patient Accounts Manager.  If your insurer is one that is willing to share their payment structure with us, we can help estimate your out-of-pocket costs.  We can also assist you with setting up payment plans, applying for Medicaid or Expanded Medicaid if you qualify, or determining if you are a candidate for our Financial Assistance Program which assists those who are unable to pay their medical bills.

Note that prices for pharmaceuticals are based on average wholesale price (AWP). AWP is based on an average of the price paid by pharmacies to purchase the drug from wholesalers (which can vary based on the contracts each pharmacy/pharmacy chain has with each wholesaler). As AWP changes, our prices will change and this price list may not reflect the latest price.

If you are interested in determining what you will need to pay for a specific procedure or service, please call us at 815-664-1575.  We may be able to help estimate your out-of-pocket costs.  We can also assist you with setting up payment plans, applying for Medicaid if you qualify, or determining if you are a candidate for Financial Assistance.

Pertaining to COVID-19 Testing:

Due to critical shortages of supplies, St. Margaret’s Health is no longer testing walk-in patients for COVID-19; a physician’s order IS REQUIRED. If you have been exposed to COVID-19, please isolate at home, wear a mask and IF symptoms develop, contact your physician to request an order to be tested.

Having symptoms? In order to be tested for COVID-19, Influenza (Flu), Strep, RSV, or to receive a Respiratory Array test, patients MUST have a doctor’s order. Contact your medical care provider. Please DO NOT visit the testing center in Spring Valley without a physician’s order, OR visit an Emergency Department for testing.

There are many sites throughout the Illinois Valley that are still currently testing without physician’s orders, although appointments may be required.  Please refer to local pharmacies and health departments websites, or visit https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/testing-sites for more information.
