Price Transparency

To be compliant with the federal government’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Jefferson Healthcare publishes a list of charges, also known as the hospital Chargemaster, as well as a price estimation tool for patients. With these resources patients are able to shop for services provided by Jefferson Healthcare.  It is important to note that the figures listed on the hospital Chargemaster,  in most cases, are average prices for medical procedures that are subject to change.

Hospital, clinic and laboratory charges are not the amount Jefferson Healthcare is paid by the government, most private insurers, or the majority of the uninsured. Most importantly, the figures listed are not what a patient may pay for the service/procedure listed. Patient responsibility varies by payor and can include copays, coinsurance, or other patient responsibility. Insurance companies determine the portion of the bill the member is responsible for, and the team of Jefferson Healthcare Financial Counselors is available to help you understand these terms.

Jefferson Healthcare is here as a partner to help patients understand prices.  Pricing is complicated and may involve many components. Questions and/or concerns can be directed to the Financial Counseling team at 360.385.2271.
