Federal and state regulations require all hospitals to make their standard charge information available in a machine-readable file. The information provided in the data sources below includes only hospital charges and does not include any charges that are billed separately, such as professional services provided by any independent physician or other clinicians. The amounts listed as standard charges do not reflect payment by insurance and health benefit plans and are not the patient’s actual out-of-pocket cost. If you have any questions about these listing of charges, please contact the Corporate Compliance and Internal Audit Department at 212.774.2070.
The Standard Charge information provided in the file is made available as required by 42 U.S.C 300gg et seq., 29 U.S.C. 1185 et seq., Subchapter B of chapter 100 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, Section 9824, and Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 180, each as may be amended or further interpreted, (“Applicable Law”). The Standard Charge data includes charges that are elements of negotiated contractual agreements between the Hospital and payers. Those agreements treat such data as confidential, and the payers have not waived any rights to treat such data as confidential thereunder. Any use of such Standard Charge data not anticipated by Applicable Law may violate such agreements and is not permitted.
