Medicare Hospital Procedure Charges

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.
