Price Transparency

There are many factors to consider when estimating the cost of health care. Your specific benefits, where you receive care and your medical condition can impact your final bill. To help you plan financially for your procedure or hospital stay, please download our price transparency document that lists average charges by department. 

These estimates show a standard range of hospital charges only. Your actual charges may be higher or lower than the amount(s) listed. Your doctor(s) may send you a separate bill. For an estimate of those charges, please contact your doctor(s) directly.  You can also get more information by visiting the Maryland Health Cost Commission.

Still have questions? Call our Business Office at 301-552-8093 for help. Representatives are available Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. 

*The file posted here reflects charges for items and services provided by Doctors Community Health System and its affiliates as of January 1, 2020. This type of file is commonly referred to as the hospitals “charge master.” In Maryland, the Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC) regulates the average rate for hospital services.

Though the HSCRC sets rates as of a certain date, hospital charges are allowed to fluctuate during the course of the year and detailed charges for certain items may be different than the average approved rate that covers a larger group of services. This is both permissible and normal as hospitals adjust charges frequently to comply with other HSCRC regulations.
