If you need an estimate for the average price of a service or procedure that is not listed at the links above, please contact the HMC or UWMC
clinic or location where the services are provided. You may request an estimate for the facility portion and professional portion of the services or procedures you expect to receive.
You will be billed separately by the UW Physicians (UWP) for the professional part of the procedure. The information provided here is only an estimate. Many factors will influence the actual amount you will be billed, including whether it is necessary for you to receive more, fewer, or different procedures at the time of service. There may also be radiology, laboratory, pathology and other services required that will result in additional charges.
Please note that the prices of services are different at each UW Medicine entity. This is because, although they are all part of the UW Medicine enterprise health system, each entity is a separate business with its own employees, budget and expense structure.
If your procedure is covered by insurance benefits, the insurance company will decide the amount you are responsible for paying. Your total final bill will likely be very different from the estimated price.
In order to understand your financial responsibility, it’s important that you contact your insurance company once the practitioner has identified the procedures likely to be performed.
If you do not have insurance coverage or are unable to pay the patient responsibility portion of your bill, and you meet certain income criteria, you may qualify for
financial assistance. UW Medicine staff can also help patients apply for public health insurance programs such as Medicaid or Washington State Health Insurance.
