New guidelines established by the United States Department of Health and Human Services require hospitals to place a list of their standard charges on their website. This includes the hospital’s standard charges for each diagnosis-related group (DRG). A DRG provides a way to categorize the type of patients a hospital treats and covers all charges associated with an inpatient stay from admission to discharge.
We understand that the costs of care can be confusing. A comprehensive list, generally referred to as the hospital’s “chargemaster,” includes the standard charges established by the hospital for individual services and supplies provided, and may be accessed below. The hospital’s average charges for each DRG also may be accessed below. The payment amounts that hospitals receive for patient care do not necessarily reflect the prices on either the chargemaster or the hospital’s average DRG charge.
If you have private insurance and are interested in understanding what your “out-of-pocket” costs may be for care you receive at the hospital, we encourage you to contact your health insurance company because it is in the best position to help you understand your healthcare financial obligations. For patients with Medicare or Medicaid, or patients without insurance, you may contact the hospital’s patient financial services department for estimates or additional information.
