WhyNotTheBest.org now enables users to compare what hospitals charge, on average, for some of the most common cardiac, joint-related, and other procedures—and to measure these prices against what Medicare pays hospitals. The new data are drawn from the first-ever release by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services of “chargemaster” data on the 100 most-billed discharge categories at 3,000 hospitals around the nation.
To get started exploring, view these featured reports:
Average Charges and Payments for Joint Procedures: Florida Hospitals
