Hospital charges vary from facility to facility for many complex reasons including each hospital’s unique mix of services and payer relationships. The government requires hospitals to maintain a fee schedule, commonly known as the chargemaster, and to publish the chargemaster on their websites. These charges do not reflect what patients generally pay for the services they receive or represent what the hospital is actually paid in most circumstances. The chargemaster should not be used to estimate a patient’s actual cost of care or as a meaningful comparison about what hospitals are paid for their services.
We encourage all patients – regardless of insurance status – to contact us in order to obtain a cost estimate, information about our financial assistance programs, or a better understanding of their insurance coverage.
