Beaumont Hospitals Compliment - Offers A Good Discount For Folks Without Insurance

Review by Sparticus on 2008-12-09
We recently had our first child and chose the Troy Beaumont Hospital. Though it was not the closest to us, we had heard it was a very good choice.

Neither my wife nor I had maternity coverage with our health care plans. So everything was basically going to be out of pocket for us. We called the hospital in advance and asked about how much it would cost, and if they had payment plans, etc.

They gave us the estimate and then told us we would get a 40% discount since we did not have insurance! 40% of a big number is a big savings!

We were extremely pleased to find out that their estimate of our charges before we even gave birth were spot on. In fact, they came in a little less than what we thought it was going to be.

Now granted health care costs are ridiculously high to begin with, that is a whole other topic, but it was nice to work with a hospital that gave us straight numbers and straight answers on how much it would cost us.

And the best part, the service they provided was very good... The nurses were great, and the rooms were very clean and comfortable.

I would definitely recommend this hospital if you are in the Oakland County, MI area.

That's a great discount. I'm especially surprised that their estimates came close the actual billed amount. Great review! Very Helpful!

My family uses Beaumont Hospital and at times it seems to be such a huge place, the doctors are excellent and the nurses are tops and very caring. You can tell when you walk into the hospital, it is clean, and someone is always there to help. A great hospital. We drive a ways to get there too.

That's a huge discount! I'm so glad they worked with you and your wife and that their estimates were actually close to what was being billed.

Congratulations with the new baby!!

Thanks. We feel very fortunate that everything went smoothly and we didn't have any surprises come billing time. And of course our baby girl is 100% worth every penny! =)

Was in Beaumont a couple years back and the doctors were practicing what I call "McMedicine." (i.e., get you out the door on statins) I subsequently went to Mayo and Beaumont doctors weren't even close! I could have died.
