New price data for common hospital procedures has been posted by the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems on its OregonHospitalGuide.org website. The new pricing data, based on state reporting, shows the costs for the most common inpatient and outpatient procedures for every hospital in the state, and allows potential patients to compare pricing on specific procedures between hospitals. The new data on costs shows the median amount paid by commercial insurers including patient-paid amounts like deductibles and co-pays. The website also shows the statewide median price for each procedure. The website is the result of legislation (SB900) mandating the state produce the procedure cost data from its All Payer All Claims Database.
