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 price information on medical conditions treated statewide and by each of the 47 general hospitals in Maryland. Available information includes the number of cases, the average charge (price) per case and the average length of stay in the hospital.

You can also view average charges by certain types of insurance, also called payers (Medicare, Medicaid, Commercial, and Other). For a list of payer categorizations, click here. Insurance plans differ and may cover more or less than the average price listed on this site.  The most recent data spans the first nine months of 2017 (January 1, 2017 through September 30, 2017). Historical pricing information is also available starting with 2013 data.

Your hospital bill may differ from the average 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. Please note that this hospital charge data does not include physician charges.  These charges are usually billed separately.
