A New York Times analysis of 2011 data, the most recent available, a New Jersey hospital – the Bayonne Medical Center – charged the highest amounts in the country for nearly one-quarter of the most common hospital treatments. No other hospital was at the top of the price list more often. The New York Times cites an example where Bayonne Medical typically charged $99,689 for treating each case of chronic lung disease, 5.5 times as much as other hospitals and 17.5 times as much as Medicare paid in reimbursement.
