The Charge Description Master (CDM), is a comprehensive list of charges for each inpatient and outpatient service or item provided by the hospital. Hospital charge masters are lengthy and complex documents. It is not a helpful tool for patients to comparison shop between hospitals or to estimate what health care services are going to cost them out of their own pocket.

The charge listed in the chargemaster is generally not the amount a patient will pay. If you have health insurance, the amount you will be billed and expected to pay for your services depends on your specific health insurance coverage and your insurance company’s contract with the hospital. If you do not have health insurance, you will be eligible for a self -pay discount and may be eligible for financial assistance.

For more information about the cost of your care, please contact our patient accounts staff at 660-890-7124.
