How much will I have to pay out-of-pocket for my medical care? This is a question many people ask.

Some even avoid needed tests because they don’t understand the costs involved.

You have a right to know how much common tests and procedures will cost you. And now you can find out before you receive care. 

Edward-Elmhurst Health makes it easy to estimate your healthcare costs with our cost estimator tool. It is easier than ordering a cup of coffee online!

Wondering about the cost of a cardiovascular stress test? Mammogram? Colonoscopy? Pulmonary function test? C-section? Sleep study? The tool includes a range of categories, from routine blood tests and imaging tests to biopsies, procedures, mental health services and more.

You can even estimate the cost of a COVID-19 test!

The cost estimator tool gives you an accurate estimate of your out-of-pocket costs for common tests and procedures obtained at our hospitals, 24/7, so you know what to expect.

If you have a MyChart® account, simply log in to estimate your costs (MyChart is available on the MyEEHealth™ mobile app, too). No MyChart account? No problem. Use the “guest estimates” feature.

Then, it’s a few simple steps:

  1. Find your test or procedure – search for a service by entering a keyword or CPT® code in the search field or browse by category.
  2. Input your insurance information (or skip this step to view self-pay) – Save time by logging in to MyChart and using your insurance information on file.
  3. Choose your service location (Edward Hospital, Elmhurst Hospital or Linden Oaks Hospital)
  4. Get an estimate of how much you’ll pay.

An estimate is the predicted amount you’ll pay for a medical service based on your insurance and what patients have been charged in the past. Prices may vary and an estimate is not a quote or guarantee.

We also help you manage your costs and billing much more easily:

  • Pay your bill online – Pay your physician bill, hospital bill (easy payment plans now available) or update your insurance information from anywhere in a few quick, easy steps. Learn more.
  • View insurance information – Get clear information about your insurance coverage and answers to frequently asked questions. Learn more.
  • Get financial help – Learn about payment plans, financial assistance or connect with a financial counselor for one-on-one support. Learn more.

If you need any help or have any questions about estimated costs, email PriceEstimates@EEHealth.org or call 630-527-3700 (Edward Hospital and Elmhurst Hospital) or 630-350-5027 (Linden Oaks Hospital).
