Affording a Medical Procedure

What you know about health insurance coverage could make a huge difference in your out-of-pocket costs.

In-Network Coverage
Baptist Health System is in-network with many health insurance plans.  So trusting your care to us could save you thousands of dollars compared to getting the same treatment from an out-of-network provider.

What’s more, as a full-service hospital, Houston Northwest can offer the additional benefits of on-site emergency services for peace of mind, being in-network for many health plans, having a wide range of board-certified surgeons, and maintaining high standards for patient safety and quality.  

Insurance Deductible
Throughout the year, your medical expenses may have allowed you to reach your health insurance deductible.  If so, consider scheduling your annual screenings and elective surgeries before the year ends in order to reduce your out-of-pocket costs.

Many patients take advantage of these savings by scheduling elective procedures in November and December, so it’s important to plan early, while slots are available.

Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
Many employers allow employees to put up to $2,500 into a pre-tax FSA, which makes medical costs more affordable.  If you don’t use your FSA funds by the end of the year, you may lose the money if the plan resets in January for the next year.  Make the most of your investment in your health by scheduling an annual physical or seeing a specialist for nagging pain.
