Our myDH patient portal website provides estimates for services provided at Dartmouth Health. Estimates can be requested for individual procedures and may factor in your specific insurance to estimate out-of-pocket expenses.
Please note that there are many factors we are unable to predict that may influence the actual charges, such as:
- Length of time spent in the hospital
- Additional tests or procedures that may be ordered by your provider
- Other unforeseen conditions that may impact your care or recovery
Total charges are reflected on a final billing statement, which may be more or less than the estimated amount.
To access myDH estimates:
- If you have a myDH account, log into myDH and go to Billing > Estimates.
- If you do not have a myDH account, go to the myDH Guest Estimates web page or go to myDH.org and click the Guest Estimates button on the login screen.

Self-pay and uninsured patients
You have the right to receive a "good faith estimate" explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a good faith estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a good faith estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a good faith estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your good faith estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your good faith estimate.
