Hospital Charge Information
In Maryland, the average rates for hospital services are regulated by the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC), a state regulatory agency. The HSCRC sets average hospital rates on January 1 and July 1 every year.
Hospital charges do not include charges for physician services, commonly referred to as professional fees, which are separate from the hospital bill. Though the state sets hospital rates as of a certain date, hospital charges are allowed to fluctuate during the course of the year, and, detailed charges for certain items may be different than the average approved rate that covers a larger group of services. Charges on individual hospital bills may be different than the charges posted here because they change during the course of the year. This is both allowable and normal as hospitals adjust charges frequently to comply with other regulations. Rates are set on average, and the underlying service charges may vary because they are components of that average. Unless otherwise noted, all charges are for both inpatient and outpatient procedures.
