Using the FH Medical Cost Lookup
The FH Medical Cost Lookup offers information on estimated costs for healthcare
professionals’ services for medical procedures, including a limited number of anesthesia
services available on FH Estimate Assist®. At this time the website does not include
charges for durable medical equipment or separate facility fees, which may be billed
in addition to healthcare professional fees, when services are performed in a hospital,
freestanding clinic, or other treatment center. Over time, the FH Medical Cost Lookup
will be expanded to include this information.

Estimating Your Costs
The medical cost lookup uses data from the FAIR Health Database to estimate costs
for specific medical procedures. You can use the site to estimate your out-of-pocket
costs with and without insurance coverage.
If you are insured, please note that some plans set out-of-network reimbursement
rates based on a percentage of “usual, customary, and reasonable” (UCR) charges,
while others use a formula based on a fee schedule established for Medicare.
Insured out-of-pocket costs will be estimated using the UCR-based reimbursement
method. If your plan bases reimbursement on a percentage of Medicare, you can easily
recalculate your results by selecting the “Medicare-Based” button on the results
