The information listed in these links is charge data only. Avera fully supports offering information on the price of health care, including price transparency. Please be aware that charge data alone provides little information to understand what your out-of-pocket cost will be.

State hospital associations in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota offer price compare web sites that allows health care consumers to receive basic information about services and charges at hospitals within those states and compare overall charges between hospitals. These prices should not be used as an estimate for out-of-pocket costs, which will vary based on your insurance coverage. If you are insured, contact your health insurance provider, who can estimate your out-of-pocket costs based on your co-pay and deductible. If you are uninsured, contact your hospital for out-of-pocket cost information for specific services.

Avera offers an online tool to let consumers compare price estimates for a wide range of health care services.

By January 2021, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are requiring hospitals to provide a price estimator tool for as many of the 70 CMS-specified shoppable services that are performed by the hospital, and as many additional hospital-selected shoppable services as is necessary for a combined total of at least 300 shoppable services.

Avera is proud to be a leader in providing consumers with easily accessible, understandable and reliable information about health care costs.

The estimate is only for out-of-pocket cost for services at the selected Avera hospital. Additional services that may not be part of the estimate include, but are not limited to, professional fees, anesthesia services and radiology technician charges.

The CMS rule also requires a comprehensive “standard charges” file be posted online, and offer information on things such as gross charges, discounted cash prices and payer-specific negotiated charges. This information can be found below.
