In compliance with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), hospital transparency guidelines, effective January 1, 2019 SGMC is providing a link below to its Chargemaster price lists. It is important to understand that the documents contain full list prices which do not account for negotiated insurance discounts, co-pays, co-insurance, and deductibles. The prices do not always reflect all costs associated with a service and a service could be represented by multiple items. Per CMS guidelines the files will be updated annually each July.
It is always recommended that you work with your scheduler to obtain the most accurate out-of-pocket expenses.
