HVK Chargemaster Information
As required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), attached is the current standard charge listing, or Chargemaster, for hospital services, effective January 1, 2019.
Charges DO NOT reflect the patient out-of-pocket cost for care and services. For patients with insurance, the hospital accepts payment for services from the insurance provider based upon contracted rates. Patients are only responsible for co-pays and deductibles, if applicable.
Pharmacy charges may vary due to quarterly rate changes. The rates also can be impacted by availability, access and changes in market pricing.
For patients without insurance, the hospital provides discounts based upon current Medicare payment rates. Please refer to our Financial Assistance policy for details.
