Northwestern Medicine Chargemaster

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.

For more information about the cost of your care, please see the resources on our Billing and Insurance Page.
