Our Commitment to Quality Care
Mosaic Life Care is dedicated not only to delivering the highest quality care available, but also to providing our patients with the most information possible so they are confident in the care they receive and the price they pay. This means being transparent with the quality and price of care.
In an effort to increase that transparency, we decided to participate in the Missouri Hospital Association’s (MHA’s) project to deliver cost and quality data from our inpatient and emergency hospital services. This gives patients access to data that demonstrates how Mosaic Life Care compares to other health-care organizations and state averages in terms of pricing, outcomes and quality of care.
Understanding the Data
Before you browse the data, here’s some information that will help you understand what it all means to you as a patient.
- Pricing and quality data are from 2014 and are based on inpatient and emergency department claims.
- Pricing data does not include professional services (additional costs such as physician fees, radiologist fees, etc.).
- Pricing data does not reflect your out-of-pocket expenses. Every patient’s situation and treatment plan is unique to his or her needs, and insurance coverage varies from person to person. These prices may not be what you are billed.
- To have a better understanding of what your out-of-pocket expenses will be for a service or procedure at Mosaic Life Care at St. Joseph, Medical Center, please contact your insurance provider first, then Mosaic Life Care’s pre-registration office at (816) 271-6579 or 1-800-447-6827. If you are insured, please have your coverage information available when calling.
