Q  If I am uninsured, do I pay the hospital’s retail price?
A That depends. If you are a earning a yearly salary that would support health coverage, then you could pay the full retail price. However, if your annual earnings are below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines, you will likely qualify for a sliding-fee or discounted-fee schedule to help pay your healthcare bills.
