Estimates for hospital charges
Willamette Valley Medical Center is here to help you plan for your medical expenses. We offer estimates for hospital charges prior to arrival. To get the most accurate estimate, it is helpful to have the CPT and Diagnosis codes for the procedure or test you wish to have estimated. Your doctor’s office can give you the codes. Our estimates are based on “usual and customary charges.” These are strictly estimates and may change depending on physician treatment plans and/or patient complications. Please note that Physician fees and/or Radiology/Pathology interpretation charges are not included in the estimated facility charges. These charges are billed separately by these offices.
To get an estimate, please call our “Estimate Line” at (800) 370-1983

Understanding Billing and Charges at Willamette Valley Medical Center
Willamette Valley Medical Center (WVMC) is committed to helping you understand and prepare for potential out-of-pocket costs related to medical services you or a loved one may receive at our hospital, and we have resources available to assist you. Please contact WVMC’s Financial Counselor at (503) 435-6345 or visit the MedData website at any time to discuss your specific care needs and the potential associated charges. Additionally, WVMC offers estimates for hospital charges prior to arrival by calling our Estimate Line at (800) 370-1983. These estimates are based on “usual and customary charges,” which may change depending on physician treatment plans and/or patient complications. If you are insured, you also should contact your insurer to understand your coverage of services.
In addition, as required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), our hospital has provided a complete list of charges for all services and items provided by our facility. Please see our Charge Description Master and Diagnosis-Related Group documents for more information.
The amount listed is not necessarily reflective of your actual financial responsibility. The amount collected by our hospital can be less than the amount on this list for a number of reasons, including discounts negotiated with third party payers like Medicare, Medicaid and commercial insurance companies as well as patient-specific discounts based upon financial need and other considerations. We recommend that all patients contact their insurer or WVMC’s Financial Counselor to discuss their individual situations and determine the potential out-of-pocket costs of their care.
This discussion with your insurer or the hospital is an important step because many factors affect an individual’s financial responsibility for the cost of hospital care, including:
- If an individual has insurance, and under which insurer and plan he or she is covered;
- Individual qualifications for additional financial assistance from the facility;
- Factors specific to each patient’s care and needs, such as:
- Length of stay in the hospital
- Specific items needed for care
- Additional testing required or recommended by your provider, and
- Unexpected complications.
