This new site from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services provides a listing of how much hospitals charge for common inpatient services. From the site, “The data provided here include hospital-specific charges for the more than 3,000 U.S. hospitals that receive Medicare Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) payments for the top 100 most frequently billed discharges, paid under Medicare.” The Inpatient Charge Data is available in Microsoft Excel or .CSV (Comma Separated Values) format. It provides the diagnosis of the patients, the hospital name, address, state, number of discharges, average covered charges, and average total payments. A national and state summary level is also listed.
From the website, “FindYouthInfo.gov is the U.S. government Web site that helps you create, maintain, and strengthen effective youth programs.” One section of the website provides information of different topics that affect youth. Each listing provides the latest resources on the subject.
There is also a “Map My Community” section which provides information on federally supported youth resources in a community. A search can be done by zip code. There are different topics and government departments that allow you to limit the search to just that specific program. Collaboration profiles are also included for non-profits and private agencies.
