GBMC Standard Hospital Charges

Pursuant to its Fiscal Year 2019 Inpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) requires all hospitals as of January 1, 2019, to make public their lists of standard charges on the internet. The type of file posted here is commonly referred to as the hospital’s “chargemaster,” and CMS has indicated that information from the chargemaster will satisfy this requirement. GBMC is publishing information from its chargemaster to comply with this requirement and provide pricing transparency for patients.

The hospital rates in Maryland differ from those in other states because all Maryland hospital rates are established by the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (“HSCRC”), a state regulatory agency. More information about the HSCRC can be found at the HSCRC website. GBMC’s charges are the same for all patients, but a patient’s financial responsibility will vary depending on factors such as the patient’s insurance or other health care payment coverage and utilization of services (e.g., duration of surgical procedure or length of stay).

The rates set forth in the Price Disclosure Link below are set by the HSCRC and are subject to change semi-annually based on factors determined by the HSCRC throughout the year. GBMC will update its posted rates semi-annually. The charges included in the Price Disclosure Link include hospital facility charges and do not include professional fee charges that may be billed separately by physicians or providers involved with a patient’s care.
