Price Transparency

The price transparency policy of Lincoln Surgical Hospital is to allow our patients to obtain our standard charges in compliance with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This policy is aimed to promote price transparency for patients in order to help them understand their potential financial liability for any service provided at our hospital and to allow consumers the ability to comparison shop for similar services across hospital providers.

On August 2, 2018, CMS issued a final rule (CMS-1694-F) updating Medicare payment policies specifically requiring hospitals make available a list of their current standard charges via the Internet in a machine-readable format and to update this information at least annually.

Average Claim Charges for Inpatient and Outpatient Procedures are comprised of all hospital facility charges reported on patient claims when the surgical procedure listed in the description is the primary procedure performed. These charges are inclusive of (but not limited to) surgical procedures, supplies, medications, implants, lab, radiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy, operating room, recover room, procedure room and patient room. Professional services provided (surgeon, anesthesia provider, hospitalist, etc.) will be billed to you separately.

In addition, The Healthcare Financial Management Association has developed a guide to help consumers get answers to questions about health care prices, compare prices for a particular service among providers, better understand, plan and manage out‐of‐pocket health care costs. The guide also helps consumers compare hospitals based on quality outcomes.
