The "Charge Master" is a complete list of prices for all hospital services. This is the most comprehensive and detailed picture of hospital charges. However, it would be a challenge to use this to estimate charges for a hospitalization or outpatient surgery since there will be multiple services provided on a given day. For example, there will be a room and board charge for each day in the hospital. There will also be lab charges, pharmacy charges, respiratory therapies, imaging, etc. To make this research more user-friendly, we have created a charge category field that allows you to filter on certain types of charges (ie the room and board vs the lab charges) so you don't have to look at all 25,000 lines of the Charge Master.
In all cases except where noted, this does not include the prices for physician services — this is for hospital services only.
