The information provided below is a comprehensive list of charges for each inpatient and outpatient service or item provided by this hospital, also known as a charge master. Please keep the following in mind:
- Hospital charge data is being provided as part of a federal regulatory policy mandated by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
- Hospital charge data is not representative of a patient’s expected out-of-pocket costs. Because each patient’s case is different based on specific medical conditions, the actual amount owed by a patient will depend on that patient's insurance coverage.
- Hospital charge data is the amount a hospital bills an insurer for a service. In the vast majority of cases, however, hospitals are reimbursed by insurance companies and Medicare/Medicaid at a rate that is considerably less than the amount charged.
- Patients should talk with their insurance provider (or the hospital financial services staff) to understand which costs will be covered, and which will be the patient's responsibility.
