Hospital Prices for UH Elyria
In compliance with state law, University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center is providing this price list containing our charges for room and board, emergency department, operating room, delivery, physical therapy and other procedures. The hospital's charges are the same for all patients, but a patient's responsibility may vary, depending on payment plans negotiated with individual health insurers.

It’s important to know that the pricing information we provide on our website is a starting point for understanding the costs for your health care.

You may meet with a representative at the hospital Monday – Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The representatives are next to the cashier in the main lobby at UH Elyria Medical Center.
Although hospital charges can be high, we work to keep our prices the lowest in our community. A price list of our most common services is published for you. If you believe you are being billed for a service you did not receive, call us and we will investigate immediately.
We do not calculate any charge interest on outstanding payments. Ohio’s Prompt Pay law requires some insurers to pay interest automatically if they do not pay within the law’s timeframes. Federal law requires Medicare to pay interest automatically on certain delayed payments.
Billing and Payments:
We will bill your insurance(s) at no charge. Unless there is a long delay, we will not bill you for your co-payment or deductible until your insurance has decided your benefits. You may pay us using the “Pay My Bill” tab on our website, by mail by phone using a credit card or checking account. (Call our Customer Service Lines or by visiting the Cashier at UH Elyria Medical Center located in the front lobby).
