Get a Cost Estimate

Nationwide Children's Hospital wants to provide families with the tools they need to make educated health care choices.  We are now offering a tool that lets patients see cost estimates for future or current services.

To use the tool, you will be asked to enter name, date of birth and insurance information to get a cost estimate.

Nationwide Children’s prices are the same for all patients. However, actual billed amounts for a patient's visits may vary due to the combination of services provided to the patient during a visit.

This is an estimate only. It will not affect your ability to receive care at Nationwide Children's. The tool provides estimates for more than 300 procedures. It does not include every service we provide at Nationwide Children’s. Your insurance company has the most accurate information related to your individual benefits. We encourage you to contact them with any questions concerning your coverage.
