Based on the initial treatment recommendation, the International
Services staff will prepare a Medical Services Cost Estimate which
details the estimated charges for both hospital resources and the
physicians involved in the child's tentative plan of care. When
possible, we will provide information regarding any potential
additional costs such as medical equipment, supplies, pharmacy and
diagnostic testing as available. If requested, International
Services staff also can advise on availability and costs associated
with hotel, temporary housing and transportation in Kansas
- The Medical Services Cost Estimate is NOT a packaged price
arrangement, nor does it represent the actual costs of diagnostic
evaluation and subsequent treatment.
- The proposed plan of care can change once the child has been
examined at CMH, and, can change even during the actual treatment
process. The Medical Services Cost Estimate will be revised
according to the physician's treatment recommendations.
It is essential to understand that CMH physicians and staff work
as a team to provide the family with the most accurate medical and
financial information possible. However, in most cases, it is
impossible to identify all the factors that can impact the child's
diagnosis and subsequent treatment recommendations until a CMH
physician examines the child.
