DISCLAIMER AND EXPLANATION FOR STANDARD HOSPITAL CHARGES
This hospital determines its standard charges for patient services with the use of a
chargemaster or similar system, which is a list of charges for the components of patient
care that go into every patient's bill. These are the baseline rates for services provided at
The chargemaster is similar in concept to the manufacturer's suggested retail price
(MSRP) on a vehicle. It is the starting price of each service performed and goods consumed
associated with the individual patient's treatment. The chargemaster rates are updated
from time to time to accurately reflect the hospital's expenses to operate.
Standard charges shown above and in the attached file do not necessarily reflect what a
patient may pay. Government insurance plans such as Medicare and Medicaid do not pay
the chargemaster rates, but rather have their own set rates which hospitals are obligated
to accept. Commercial insurance payments are based on contract negotiations with
managed care payors and may or may not reflect the standard charges. Patients without
commercial insurance or not covered by a government health care plan should contact the
hospital prior to a procedure to discuss charges, alternative pricing, and payment terms.
***All our physician professional fees that are billed by the hospital are in the same
network as the hospital facility. Therefore, there should not be any out of network issues
as long as the hospital has the contract.***
