Price Transparency

Hospital Price Transparency Rule

On November 15, 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) released the final rule (“final rule”) on price transparency requirements for hospitals to make standard charges public. The final rule requires hospitals to publicly disclose the prices they charge for items and services, including their negotiated reimbursement rates with third-party payers. The final rule was effective on January 1, 2021.

The ability of Parrish Medical Center to comply with the rule at this time is particularly challenged by an increase in the volume of COVID-19 patients and the need to distribute multiple vaccines. Both of these events are straining our resources at a critical time in the course of the pandemic sweeping our community and the nation. These strains are further compounded by the considerable gaps in federal guidance creating compliance uncertainty and recent legislation placing new price transparency requirements on hospitals. Parrish Medical Center is working to become compliant with the final rule and will implement effective tools and make information available on this website as soon as practicable and possible.

IMPORTANT – Please note that the information contained in the next section shows what the hospital charges for specific services. It is an estimate only and NOT necessarily what you will actually have to pay for those services. If you have health insurance, what you will pay depends on the specific benefits included in your health insurance policy. You will need to call your insurance company in order to understand what you will actually have to pay (e.g., copays, deductibles, co-insurance, etc.).
