The information provided on this page is our comprehensive list of charges for each service or item provided by our health system.
Hospital chargemaster, Supply chargemaster and Pharmacy chargemaster: Here you will find charges for all services we offer at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Line items and charges in these chargemasters are the amount billed to Medicare, Medicaid or an insurance company. Those insurers then apply their contracted rates to the services that are billed.
The chargemasters are not helpful for a patient to comparison shop between hospitals or to estimate what health care services are going to cost you out of pocket. For more information about the cost of your care, please contact us at 614-293-2100 to receive an estimate.
Diagnostic Related Grouping (DRG): This list offers the average inpatient charges per DRG grouping. A DRG is a collection of services you are provided as an inpatient and are used to create the hospital claim. This claim is then billed to Medicare, Medicaid or other health insurance companies. Those insurers then apply their contracted rates to the services that are billed.
In situations where a patient does not have insurance, our hospital has financial assistance policies that apply discounts to the amounts charged. Learn more about our financial assistance policies.
These lists are current as of: January 1, 2020.
