This is an estimate of the total charge for the health care service before any discounts provided to the uninsured.
Number of Visits Number of Visits
When the number of visits varies, it is difficult to estimate the total cost of care. This indicates the number of visits you can expect, calculated using the median. To determine the total you might pay, multiply the Estimate of Procedure Cost and the Statewide Average for Number of Visits.
- Above Average: Expect to visit the provider more than the average number of visits.
- Near Average: Expect the visit the provider close to the average number of visits.
- Below Average: Expect to visit the provider less than the average number of visits.
