At Gundersen we're committed to doing what we can to reduce the cost of healthcare, and we're working hard to provide information that can help you better understand our charges. We also recognize that more of your healthcare costs are now coming directly out of your own pocket, and it's understandable you'd want to know the price of a procedure or treatment in advance. Here are some options that may help.
What are my out-of-pocket costs?
If you're like most patients, your main question is likely "What will this procedure or treatment cost me?" And the best way to get that answer is to contact your insurance company (their contact information is on your insurance card). They can sort through benefits, deductibles, copays and other information to determine what you'll need to pay. If you are a MyCare member, Gundersen has a user-friendly tool that can estimate your out-of-pocket costs for several common procedures, plus imaging and lab. MyCare is our free, online patient portal. Learn more about how you can sign up for MyCare.
Can I get an estimate of my care?
Gundersen has an Estimates team that can help you if you're getting care in La Crosse, Onalaska, or any of our locations not associated with one of our regional center hospitals (Boscobel, Moundview, Hillsboro, Whitehall, Wis. areas or West Union, Iowa). You can connect with our Estimates team at (608) 775-8660 or email us. If you get your care at a regional hospital or one of their clinics, you can find contact information here. You can also view our patient estimate policy.
