What is chargemaster?
A chargemaster is a comprehensive list of charges for each inpatient and outpatient service provided by a hospital – each test, exam, surgery or other procedures, room charges, etc.
- Given the broad scope of services provided by hospitals 24/7, a chargemaster contains thousands of services and charges.
- Health insurance companies contract with hospitals to care for their customers. Hospitals are paid the insurance company’s contract rate, which generally is significantly less than the amount listed on the chargemaster.
An individual hospital’s charges vary based on its unique range of services, adoption of new medical technologies, government underfunding, patient demographics and other local and regional factors.
The chargemaster is not a useful tool for consumers who are comparison shopping between hospitals.
- Our hospital employs financial counselors and other resources to help our patients understand their financial obligations.
- We encourage patients to reach out and ask detailed financial questions – especially before scheduled services.
- Our hospital is ready to help patients and their families understand their financial obligations at any time during the treatment process.
The information provided below is a comprehensive list of charges for each inpatient and outpatient service or item provided by Firelands Regoinal Medical Center, also known as a chargemaster. It is not a helpful tool for patients to comparison shop between hospitals or to estimate what health care services are going to cost them out of their own pocket.
