Price Transparency

The charge description master (CDM) is a comprehensive listing of individual procedures, services and items billable to a hospital patient or a patient’s health insurance provider, but it is not reflective of what a patient actually pays.

Support and assistance

Understanding your costs for care and procedures can be complicated. Let us help with an estimate for what you may pay.

  • While this document outlines standard base charges, these are not necessarily charges a patient will see.
  • Every patient is unique and actual patient payment is highly dependent upon a combination of factors.
  • Even for similar procedures at the same facility, what a patient actually pays may differ based on their insurance plan and other factors.
  • Cost is only one factor consumers should review when making healthcare decisions. Outcomes, Quality/safety data and experiences should also be considered.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have required all hospitals to make available our CDM. In compliance with this requirement, as well as offer our patients more information about costs and charges, we share our price transparency file*.

In addition, we have provided a list, as required by CMS, of some of the most common services and associated costs. Like the CDM and other files, it is important to remember these do not necessarily reflect the exact charges a patient will see, depending on insurance plans.

We support helping patients make informed decisions, which is why we offer a patient financial customer service center to provide individualized assistance in determining the actual cost of care.

Please call a financial counselor at our financial customer services center, 785-623-5100, to understand your individualized case.
