You are about to download a spreadsheet of “standard charges,” which the hospital making available in accordance with Section 2718(e) of the Public Health Services Act and guidance issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”).
- By clicking below, you acknowledge that the Hospital’s list of “standard charges” reflects data in the hospital’s chargemaster, but that your actual financial liability for any hospital items and services received may differ based on your health care coverage or any financial assistance you may receive. Medicare, Medicaid, and other government-sponsored health coverage as well as employer-sponsored and commercial health care plans that have a network provider agreement with the hospital may pay a different amount, and any deductible, copayment, or coinsurance obligation you might have may vary accordingly. In addition, some patients are eligible for financial assistance under our financial assistance policy. If you are concerned about the cost of care, you are urged to contact our financial counselors at the number above.
- By clicking below, you also acknowledge that charges for certain items and services may differ from the “standard charges” shown on this spreadsheet as follows: (1) Charges for drugs and biologicals vary based on market prices, and the “standard charges” shown reflect the charges in effect based on market prices on the date shown. (2) Charges for inpatient admissions vary depending on the particular items and services a patient receives during his or her inpatient stay and the current charges for those items and services, and the “standard charges” shown for inpatient stays reflect the average charges billed during an inpatient stay between the dates shown with no adjustment for subsequent changes in charges.
- In order to better understand your potential cost-sharing obligation, we recommend that you contact our financial counselors at the number above.
