  • Check to see if you qualify for discounted care,
  • Check to see if you qualify for public health care coverage
  • Be given a payment plan if you qualify.

Melissa Memorial Hospital's Standard Charges

To improve price transparency, all U.S. hospitals and health systems are required to provide lists of standard hospital charges ― also called a chargemaster ― so patients can compare prices across hospitals. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind as you view the list of standard charges.

  • These charges are rarely the price that patients pay. The chargemaster lists the dollar amount set for each service prior to insurance contract/benefit plan discounts or self-pay discounts being applied, so the price patients pay tends to be less than the standard charge.
  • Hospital charges differ from patient to patient for the same service, depending upon variations in treatment.
  • Patients who are eligible for financial assistance also receive additional discounts.
  • Items included in a charge vary across hospital systems. For example, what’s included in one hospital’s charge for room and board may differ from other hospital’s charges ― some hospitals bundle services together into a single charge that others may list separately.
  • Looking at various hospital charges does not provide any indication of the quality of service and outcomes.

Pricing Lists

To make medical pricing more transparent, all U.S. hospitals are required to provide the following pricing lists. The pricing is listed by the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code used by insurance companies. The lists are in a spreadsheet format.

PLEASE NOTE: The pricing lists below show charges prior to contract negotiations with individual insurance providers. They may be useful for comparing pricing with other hospitals, but they DO NOT indicate actual costs to patients.

This list shows preliminary pricing for thousands of different services and medical procedures performed at Melissa Memorial Hospital.

This list shows pricing by types of patient groups, referred to as MS-DRGs (Medicare Severity Diagnosis Related Groups).

This list shows Melissa Memorial Hospital's pricing for the most common 300 medical services. It includes gross charges, discounted cash prices, and payer-specific negotiated charges.

Patient Portal

The Patient Portal is your secure Internet-based gateway enabling you to access your Electronic Medical Record (EMR). This website will allow you access to custom, tailored content so you have access to what you need… when you need it.

Why a Patient Portal?

This solution has been implemented to provide an alternate method for you to access your medical information so you may communicate with your Provider without traveling to the hospital. In many cases, messages through the portal will get to your Provider sooner than making a phone call to the clinic. At this time, you will be able to leave a message for your provider and request medication refills via the Patient Portal.

What to Expect on the Patient Portal?

When you first sign up and login to the portal, your medical history will not be populated from past visits. You will, however, have access to all new care plans, laboratory results, and medication information moving forward from that point and into the future. Again, once you are signed up, your medical information from that point forward will populate automatically to your account.

What Support is Available for the Patient Portal?

You must have an active email address and internet access to register for access to the Patient Portal; we will be unable to assist you if you do not have these things already in place. We will provide any assistance you may need in logging into the site and navigating the Patient Portal.
