New federal regulations require that all hospitals publish a list of charges for every service and supply item provided as of January 1, 2019 and our list follows. We have included a description, a code, and the charge amount; you should be able to match the code to other hospital’s list, but the description may be a bit different. Please note that not all services listed have CPT code, just those assigned per CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid).
The purpose of this list is to allow patients to compare pricing between different hospitals, however you should know that different hospitals will include different charge items within similar services. Most often hospital invoices include several CPT charges. Your specific health care requirements and variables will make your invoice unique. To make your cost comparison most accurate, call each hospital and ask for a price estimate based on the specific services you will require, then compare the two estimates.
