is also pleased to offer our patients our new Price Estimator Tool to help you understand your out-of-pocket expenses associated with your healthcare services. The tool allows you to enter your personal insurance information as well as the test or service ordered by your physician, which will then be used to calculate an estimate of your financial responsibility. In the event you are not covered by insurance, the tool will calculate your financial responsibility based on our self-pay discount policy. The tool provides estimates on over 300 of the most common services and tests ordered by physicians. In the event your particular service or test is not included, you will still be able to seek assistance from our Customer Service staff by calling (314) 576-8100 as you have in the past.
