Hospital Charges

One Brooklyn Health System at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, is committed to being transparent about our charges. This site provides information about all the charges for all services and items provided by the hospital. The charges are uniform for all patients served by the hospital.

Hospital charges rarely reflect the expected out-of-pocket expense for a specific hospital service. The specific charges for services you received, what you will be billed and your out-of-pocket expenses, will depend on one or more of the following:

· The actual patient care services received

· The terms of your insurance coverages, and/or

· Your eligibility for financial assistance
