        There are several different factors that determine your cost for health care services you receive, including the following:

        • Insurance coverage and benefits: This is the amount that your insurance provider has contractually agreed to pay the Medical Center for services you receive. Your benefits also detail the types of services that your insurer will cover.
        • Out-of-pocket costs: This is the portion of the cost of care that you are responsible for through co-pays, deductibles and coinsurance. Insurance providers typically define the maximum amount that a patient will pay in a given benefit year.
        • Quality of care: At the Medical Center, we pride ourselves in providing you with the highest-quality care, and we invest in the resources we need to ensure that you receive the best care possible. The Medical Center is consistently recognized as one of the leading academic medical centers for quality and safety in a study by Vizient — a health care services company.
