Community Assistance Pricing (CAP)™ Program
Today, health care is more expensive than ever, making it tougher for you
to stay healthy. At Garden City Hospital, we don’t want you to sacrifice
your wellness because you are worried about the bills.
That’s why we have a reduced pricing program for those who do not
have insurance. Garden City Hospital believes the easier it is for you
to pay for services, the better you can maintain good health.
With our Community Assistance Pricing Program, you don’t have to

If you do not have medical insurance, you may qualify to save 40-80% on
many medical services and procedures. There are two ways to participate
in the CAP Program:
- Pay in advance of your appointment.
- Pay at the time services are provided.
“CAP” Your Emergency Room (ER) Visit
The last thing you need to worry about when arriving for emergency medical
care is how much it will cost. When you pay the same day you are treated,
we “CAP” your ER charge at $250 – no matter what tests,
procedures or emergency services you receive during the visit, thus saving
you hundreds of dollars. For your convenience, Garden City Hospital accepts
most debit and credit cards, checks and cash. If the ER visit results
in a hospital admission, ER CAP pricing is not applicable.

Following are standard charge lists for certain procedures. However, the
actual amount paid by any patient varies widely and primarily depends
on the type of insurance, if any, that the patient has. For uninsured
and underinsured patients who may qualify, there are financial assistance
and discount programs available through our hospital, and staff who can
assist with eligibility for government programs such as Medicaid.
