Financial Counseling - Price Estimates
UW Health can provide a price estimate—a prediction of what your future procedure or treatment will cost and how much you may be responsible for paying based on your insurance coverage.
An estimate is the predicted amount your medical services will cost you. This includes information on what total charges have been in the past for this same service, as well as, what your personal out of pocket costs could be based on your insurance benefits.

How Accurate are Estimates
UW Health works hard to provide accurate estimates. However, it is important to understand that because of the personalized nature of healthcare, patient differences, and the potential for unforeseen complications we cannot provide an estimate guarantee.
Factors that may alter your actual out of pocket costs include, but are not limited to the following:
- Variations to the services and codes estimated
- Receiving additional services not included in the estimate (i.e. additional labs, appointments, imaging)
- Receiving care at a different location than what was estimated
- Receiving healthcare services at UW Health or another healthcare facility between the date the estimate was created and your date of service (i.e. your remaining deductible may change over time
After your insurance company processes the claim, you will either be billed the remaining amount due or refunded any overpayment. If you have any patient balances for other dates of service, your overpayment will be applied to those balances.
