Paying For Your Care

Four Winds Saratoga is committed to providing you with the information you need to make the best possible decisions about your care. That includes providing information about our standard charges, the list of insurance plans accepted by the hospital, and alerting you to the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses.

Hospitals are required to make available information about standard charges for the services they provide. The standard charges are $1,500 per day for inpatient treatment and $550 per day for partial hospitalization.  The standard charges for ECT treatment are $1,100 per treatment, in addition to the cost of the inpatient day.  However, hospitals negotiate payment rates with insurers, HMOs, and managed care plans and those rates may be different from standard charges and from each other. Deductibles and co-payments, if any, vary, and you could receive a bill for those costs.

Please note that if your insurance plan is not on the list, you may wish to contact your plan to determine whether your carrier would be willing to make a payment arrangement with Four Winds Saratoga.

It is also likely that your insurance carrier “manages” your medical and mental health benefits. Click here for an explanation of Managed Mental Health Care What You Need To Know.
