We are committed to transparency and want to educate you, so you are better informed to make personal decisions about your health and finances. To help you do this Hunterdon Medical Center has provided you with our Standard Charges and a Patient Price Estimator.

A patient’s individual financial responsibility will vary depending on their type of insurance coverage and benefits. Please utilize the Patient Price Estimator.

- Insurance Card and other policy information (if you have insurance): Member ID/Policy # or Subscriber # as it appears on the card.
- Insurance company name, type of insurance, etc.
