Hospital Charges

MetroHealth embraces accountability and transparency in health care pricing. We have traditionally posted the pricing of frequently used services on our website with their associated charges. View Frequently Used Hospital Services Jan 1, 2019 [PDF].

In addition, as of January 1, 2019 we have provided the Hospital Charge Price List in a format as defined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). View  Hospital Charge Price List [CMS-CSV].

A Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) is a classification system used by insurance companies to standardize inpatient hospital stays. This link contains our average charges for each DRG in 2018. View DRG Avg Charges [CMS-CSV]. Your individual responsibility will vary depending on what type of insurance coverage and benefits you have. For more information about the specific cost of your care please call a representative at (216) 778-3010.

A hospital’s charge is the dollar amount that is billed to insurance companies; however, it is typically not what a patient will be responsible for paying. A patient’s individual financial responsibility will vary depending on their type of insurance coverage and benefits.

We have representatives who can help assist with providing patients with out of pocket estimates and also financial coordination, whether you have insurance or not. For help, please call 216-778-3010. A link to our Patient cost estimator is below: My Cost Estimator.
