Price Transparency

In today’s complex and ever-changing health care market, consumers are becoming more responsible for their own health care, including costs. This website provides information on the top medical conditions treated in Maryland hospitals.  It also provides the top medical conditions treated by each of the 47 general hospitals in Maryland, including the number of cases, the average charge per case and the average charge per day. The most current charges are annual averages for Calendar Year 2016 (January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016). Historical pricing information is also available. Your hospital bill may differ from the charges shown in these tables. Your actual bill reflects your use of services during your hospital stay and the hospital’s charges at the time of your admission.

The hospital charges do not include physician charges.  These charges are usually billed separately.  

Coming this Spring, the Commission will begin publishing the costs for specific episodes of care.  Click here to find out more.
