Requesting Price Estimates
Abington Hospital – Jefferson Health and Abington – Lansdale Hospital are committed to providing exceptional care at the lowest cost possible. We also understand that as patients’ out-of-pocket responsibility increases, due to high deductible insurance plans and increasing co-insurance amounts, they need to become more informed consumers. To assist our patients in determining the best care possible, both Abington Hospital and Abington – Lansdale Hospital are pleased to now offer price estimates for many of our hospital-based services.
Price estimates are available when scheduling through Central Scheduling for outpatient tests, exams or procedures. Central Scheduling provides patients and medical professionals with a single contact point for scheduling non-emergent outpatient medical procedures.
To schedule, call: 215-481-EXAM (3926) or fax prescriptions to 215-481-3305.
