Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System’s Commitment to Pricing Transparency
Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System (SRHS) is committed to providing quality health care and sharing information that consumers and patients may need in order to make decisions regarding their health care.
The South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) and hospitals across the state have introduced a new consumer guide to hospital pricing called SC PricePoint.
SC PricePoint allows consumers to look up and compare average charges and number of cases by hospital and procedure at different hospitals. These average charges are not adjusted to show the discount for which most patients qualify.
SC PricePoint also offers tips, education and financial aid information that consumers should find helpful.

Things you should know when it comes to charges
- Charges vary from hospital to hospital, and even from patient to patient based upon what services they receive.
- The main factor in determining what any patient will pay out of their pocket for care is what type of health coverage he or she has.
- Individual insurers negotiate discounted rates that they will pay individual hospitals, which are not reflected in the average charges reported on SC PricePoint.
- Each patient requires a personal and unique treatment plan to meet his or her needs.
- Insured persons should contact their own health insurance companies for an estimate of what they will pay for hospital services, including estimates on out of pocket costs.
- If you are uninsured, we can help you determine if you qualify for financial assistance with your hospital bill. We can also give you an estimate of what your costs will be and work with you on a payment plan if necessary.
