Understanding Hospital Charges 2023

Transparency in pricing and standard charge list

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) require all hospitals to post a list of their standard charges — a Charge Description Master — online and update it yearly. Effective January 1, 2021, CMS guidelines now require hospitals to disclose all standard charges for care for all items and services provided by the hospital. This includes:

  • Gross charge
  • Discounted cash prices available to patients who self-pay
  • Payor-specific negotiated charges for all payors
  • De-identified minimum and maximum negotiated charges
