Hospital Charges

UnityPoint Health - Des Moines believes it is important to provide pricing information to the public. In order to give consumers the information they are looking for, UnityPoint Health - Des Moines is providing a link to The Iowa Hospital Association (IHA) website called Iowa Hospital Charges Compare. This website allows users to easily access charge information for any type of inpatient hospitalization at any Iowa hospital.

Please keep in mind the information provided on this website is only an estimate. UnityPoint Health - Des Moines's charges are the same for all patients, but a patient's responsibility may vary depending on payment plans negotiated with individual health insurers. Professional fees for physician services, such as surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, anesthesia administration and others, are also not reflected and will be billed separately by your physician.

For billing questions, consult with the UnityPoint Health - Des Moines Central Billing Office by online form or by phone (515) 362-5111.

Financial Assistance

UnityPoint Health - Des Moines provides patient care to a growing number of uninsured and underinsured patients. Individuals today carry a greater burden of their health care services' costs through growing out-of-pocket deductibles that many health insurance plans including Medicare have implemented. Many UnityPoint Health - Des Moines patients simply lack the financial resources to secure health insurance at all. Accordingly, UnityPoint Health - Des Moines along with our parent company, UnityPoint Health, has developed financial policies to seek fair payment from patients who cannot reasonably pay for part or all of the care they receive.
