Brodstone Memorial Hospital strives to assure positive patient and visitor experiences.
Thank you for choosing Brodstone Memorial Hospital as your primary care provider. We are committed to providing you with quality and affordable healthcare. We now have additional resources for patients regarding the cost of procedures. We want to be as transparent as possible so our patients know what to expect when they receive their bill.
Please remember that medical insurance is a private contract between you and your insurance company, but we will assist you in every way possible. Please bring your insurance cards with you when visiting the hospital or clinic.
By providing your insurance card, Brodstone is able to process the claim for you. The check will be sent directly to the hospital and applied to your account. Though the hospital does process the insurance claim for you, the ultimate responsibility for payment of your bills is yours.
Your monthly statements include charges from Brodstone Memorial Hospital, Superior Family Medical Center, Nelson Family Medical Center, and Edgar Medical Clinic. Some hospital services provided to patients require consultation of a physician specialist such as a radiologist, surgeon, pathologist or a cardiologist. You will receive a separate statement from these physician specialists in addition to your hospital bill for hospital services.
If you have any questions regarding your bill, please contact the business office at 402-879-3281.
Medicare and Medicaid
All inpatient and outpatient claims must be submitted by the hospital. Please bring your Medicare or Medicaid eligibility card to the hospital. Brodstone Memorial Hospital will file the patient’s Medicare claim for hospital charges, and supplemental policies which the patient may have. Patients admitted under the Medicare plan are responsible for payment of the deductible, co-insurance, and any amounts not covered by Medicare.
Patients eligible under the Medicaid program should apply for benefits before coming to the hospital. Current monthly eligibility card should be presented at the time of admission. Medicaid patients are responsible for co-payment and those charges deemed by the Medicaid program to be unnecessary.

Brodstone Memorial Hospital Price Estimator for Shoppable Services
The Price Estimator Tool from Brodstone Memorial Hospital allows you to obtain an out-of-pocket estimate for procedures that you might need done. You will need your insurance information when entering in your information to get the most accurate estimate of what you might owe.
All hospitals are required to post a list of at least 300 shoppable services along with the corresponding price for each service. The internet-based price estimator tool is an alternative to making public our standard charges for shoppable services. We did not have data on all 300 shoppable services to include in the price estimator, so the spreadsheet below includes additional data for the remaining shoppable services to meet CMS requirements. In addition, we have not performed a few of the required 300 shoppable services, so they are listed in the unavailable CMS Shoppable Services spreadsheet.

Please remember this is a tool to help estimate what you might owe out-of-pocket. For the most accurate estimate of the cost of care, patients can contact Brodstone Memorial Hospital’s Financial Counselor at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 402-879-3281 and ask to speak to the Financial Counselor.
When discussing the cost of the procedure, the Financial Counselor can help you understand your payment options at that time. Brodstone has multiple options to help you get the care you need while making sure your payments are within our guidelines. As always, an estimate does not mean that your insurance will pay for the procedure being done. What a patient actually pays will depend on their unique benefit plan terms. Please review the financial policy for more information regarding payment options.
Brodstone Memorial Hospital Standard Charges
To improve price transparency, all hospitals are required to provide patients a list of standard hospital charges, also known as a chargemaster, so patients can compare prices from facility to facility. Although this can be a helpful tool, patients need to do their research to ensure they are comparing prices appropriately. Each patients’ medical needs vary so pricing could vary depending on your current condition. In addition, patients’ need to consider the quality of care and outcome they are receiving when having a procedure done. Brodstone’s Financial Counselor is always willing and ready to help you understand what charges you should expect for your procedure. Please call Brodstone Memorial Hospital with any questions or concerns you may have regarding an estimate.
