Note: This prices listed here represent charges that were submitted to the California's Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), a government agency that collects and disseminates timely and accurate healthcare quality, outcome, financial, and utilization data.
These charges may NOT reflect the reimbursement that the health care institution receives since most health plans (including Medicare & Medicaid) negotiate reimbursement rates based on many factors. In addition reimbursement depends on the location (inpatient, ED, outpatient), complications and medical necessity of the procedure/visit. There may even be multiple charges for the same procedure depending on factors (such as bundled care for surgery, etc.).
Therefore, these charge prices should only be used for general guidance as they can be significantly different that end bill provided to the patient/payor or the cost to accomplish the procedure.
