Cost Estimator for Common Procedures

Beginning in January 2023, you can comparison-shop for quality care at the best available price with our Cost Estimator, which was designed to help you create personalized cost-sharing estimates for 500 common medical procedures.

Your estimate will include any copays, deductibles, or coinsurance associated with your upcoming procedure. Below are a few considerations to keep in mind.

An estimate of cost-sharing liability does not guarantee coverage. 

Your Summary Plan Description (SPD) offers a complete summary of your benefits, limitations, and other plan provisions. Look for your SPD in the Document Center of your Sana account.

Services billed may vary depending on the care you receive. 

Before scheduling your procedure, we recommend asking your provider for a good-faith estimate of expected charges to identify all care required for the procedure, which may include the following:

    • Labs
    • Facility fees
    • Anesthesia
    • Pre-or post-surgical therapy
    • Etc.

Actual charges may vary from your estimate if:

    • Your plan changes
    • You have additional claims or year-to-date spending prior to the procedure
    • Your provider offers different services due to complications, secondary conditions, or other unknown factors during the procedure
    • Services billed as preventive may be no-cost

Prior Authorization

Your provider's office will generally coordinate any requirements related to prior authorizations and visit or treatment limits.

Balance Bills

Your Sana plan is all-access, meaning you're not bound by a network or subject to out-of-network fees.

To avoid the rare inconvenience (less than 3%) of Balance Bills from non-contracted providers, we recommend one of the following:
