Price Transparency

Be informed about your care 

Penobscot Valley Hospital is committed to serve the healthcare needs in the Lincoln Lakes Region and we understand that you need information to make healthcare choices for you and your family. Our price estimator tool below will walk you through step by step so you can plan for the costs for treatment, tests, and procedures. We understand that it is important to plan the out-of-pocket expenses. 

You will need the name of the procedure or test you are planning to have, your insurance information, and any deductible, co-insurance, and out-of-pocket maximum amounts if you have them. After you submit this information you will receive the information for your planned services. 

If you are not able to find the type of service that you need or it is not available at PVH, please contact 207-794-7194
