Frequently Asked Questions

Shoppable Services Pricing Tool

We're here for you.

Most times, it is difficult to estimate costs prior to care as every patient’s treatment plan is different and determined after you are admitted. We may not always know the specific plan guidelines and personal coverage limitations specific to your personal insurance policy. Often the best source of information about what you will pay will come from your insurance company directly. Your personal plan benefits will ultimately determine the amount you owe (including deductibles, co-pay, co-insurance and out-of-pocket maximums).


Blanchard Valley Health System has provided to you a “Shoppable Services” pricing tool. The pricing estimate is based on information we have gathered from actual claims and insurance payment files. The tool is designed to be easy to use.  We respect your privacy and don’t ask for any personal information. When you search for a service and select your insurance plan, the tool will give you the full price for the service, as well as the specific amount that your insurance has negotiated for that service.

The tool can help you determine the potential cost for services only. If you proceed with services at Blanchard Valley Hospital or Bluffton Hospital, you may be given a new estimate with more accurate cost and out-of-pocket information.* If you have questions or need additional assistance with pricing, please call 419.425.5252.

If your search provides no results, please contact us at 419.425.5252 for assistance in pricing your services.

You may be eligible for financial assistance under the Blanchard Valley Health System financial assistance policies or the Ohio Hospital Care Assurance Program (HCAP). Patients who do not have the means to pay for necessary health care services can apply for this assistance through Blanchard Valley Health System’s financial advocacy programs. Please call our business office at 419.423.5310 to find out if you might qualify.

* Although efforts have been made to ensure the accuracy of the data provided, there are many reasons the cost of your care could vary, and you are still responsible for the full amount of your bill even if it differs from the price provided in this tool.
