Effective January 1, 2019, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires hospitals to make their chargemasters available online to patients and consumers. A chargemaster (a master listing) is a comprehensive list of charges for each inpatient and outpatients service or item provided by a hospital – each test, exam, surgical procedure, room charge, etc. Given the many services provided by hospitals 24 hours a day, seven days a week, a chargemaster contains thousands of services and related charges. Chargemaster prices can change at any time, and services and items may be added or deleted.
WellStar Health System's chargemaster (its online listing of its inpatient/outpatient services or items provided by a hospital) is available here in addition to more information.
