Effective January 1, 2019, hospitals are now required to publicly post sticker prices online. So, if you are curious about what a hospital test or procedure will cost, you can check the hospital’s website to get an idea. Although the intention is to allow patients to compare prices across health care institutions, the codes and information provided are not always in the most readable format and can be often be the opposite of consumer friendly. Below are the online prices that we found for Lee Health, in Lee County. It is important to note that the listed prices may not always resemble the actual prices. This is largely due to the rates that the hospitals negotiate with insurance companies. But, it is definitely a step in the right direction towards price transparency.
