Understanding Hospital "Charges"
Iowa Hospital Charges Compare allows health care consumers to access basic information about services and charges at Iowa hospitals. Information provided on the Web site is based on hospital "charges."
A hospital "charge" is not the same as "expected payment." "Charge" is the amount billed for a service. In the vast majority of cases, hospitals are paid considerably less than the billed amount. Because each person's case is different based on that patient's medical condition, a given patient's charge will not necessarily be the same as the average or median charge. Furthermore, the actual amount paid by a patient will depend on that patient's insurance coverage.
Iowa Hospital Charges Compare should be considered a starting point for comparing costs of care between Iowa hospitals. Patients should contact individual hospitals to get further details about the possible cost of their care. Patients should also talk with their insurance provider to understand which costs will be covered, and which will be the patient's responsibility.
Information from the Iowa Hospital Association
Across the state, Iowa hospitals offer an excellent value in health care. The quality of care in Iowa hospitals has been documented in nationwide studies. In addition, Iowa hospitals' charges for care are among the lowest in the nation. Such high-value health care is the result of a statewide health care system that is uniformly patient-centered and actively coordinated by highly skilled professionals at all levels. Iowa Hospital Charges Compare allows you to further explore and compare the value offered by Iowa hospitals.
