Tanner’s hospitals provide hospital price transparency in compliance with guidelines of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). While each facility’s Charge master price list is publicly available, the actual cost of a patient’s care may be higher or lower based on factors specific to the patient, such as their length of stay and the complexity of their medical condition.
The amount Tanner hospitals are paid by Medicare, Medicaid and commercial insurers varies by payer. In many instances, due to the reimbursement structures imposed by payers, what Tanner is ultimately paid is significantly less than the actual cost of care.
Tanner’s price lists do not include physician or other provider fees that are billed separately, such as anesthesiologists, hospitalists, pathologists, radiologists, cardiologists, emergency department physicians and other specialists who participate in a patient’s care.
We also provide patients with or without insurance the estimated cost of scheduled or anticipated services upon request.
