When it comes to health care, determining medical costs can be complicated

[By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP™]

Dr David E Marcinko MBAAt Baptist Memorial Health Care, they’re trying to make things a little easier to understand. That’s why they built Expense Navigator, an out-of-pocket medical cost estimator tool. As a doctor, patient and financial advisor, this is vital information.

Expense Navigator is a key step in Baptist’s effort to become a leader in price transparency in U.S. health care. Patients can use the medical cost estimator tool to estimate out-of-pocket costs for hundreds of hospital inpatient or outpatient procedures.

They can also get a customized estimate for care at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis or 13 other affiliated hospitals in West Tennessee, North Mississippi and East Arkansas.

So, whether you have Medicare, other insurance or are uninsured, the Expense Navigator may help you better plan for Baptist medical expenses.
