The information listed in this link is charge data only. Please be aware that charge data alone provides little information to understand what your out-of-pocket cost will be.
Please exercise caution when interpreting charge data. The use of improper assumptions and analytical methods may result in erroneous or misleading conclusions. Conclusions drawn from data are the sole responsibility of the data user. The submitted pricing information reflects hospital charges in effect on January 1. As a result, a patient’s bill for hospital services provided at a different date may contain different charges.
- Beginning January 1, 2019, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services are requiring hospitals and health systems to post their “current, standard charges.”
- Hospital charges are the amount a hospital bills an insurer for a service. For most patients, hospitals are reimbursed at a level well below charges. Patients covered by commercial insurance products have negotiated rates with hospitals. Patients covered by Medicare or Medicaid programs have hospital reimbursement rates determined by federal and state governments.
- Hospital charges may include bundled procedures, personnel, services and supplies. An example would be room rates that include the space, equipment, nursing personnel and supplies.
- When a patient has the opportunity to shop for medical services, he or she should contact his or her own insurance carrier to understand which costs will be covered and which will be the patient’s responsibility.
- Patients should contact the hospital directly for any further details.
