Understanding Hospital "Charges"

A hospital "charge" is not the same as "expected payment." "Charge" is the amount billed for a service. In the vast majority of cases, hospitals are paid considerably less than the billed amount. Because each person's case is different based on that patient's medical condition, a given patient's charge will not necessarily be the same as the average or median charge. Furthermore, the actual amount paid by a patient will depend on that patient's insurance coverage. Patients are encouraged to speak with their insurance company to understand which costs will be covered, and which will be the patient's responsibility.

To obtain a machine-readable list of all standard charges from the Charge Description Master (CDM) or by Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) for our Baptist hospitals in West Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas, please choose one of the selections below.
