The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has required all U.S.
hospitals to make their charges public by January 1, 2019. The charges
for our two hospitals - King’s Daughters Medical Center in Ashland,
Kentucky, and King’s Daughters Ohio, in Portsmouth Ohio - are posted
in the Excel files below. These charges were initially posted in December
2018. They will be reviewed and revised annually.
What you will see in the documents are average inpatient and outpatient
claim charges by diagnosis. The abbreviation MS DRG stands for Medicare
Severity Diagnosis Related Groups. The abbreviation APC stands for Ambulatory
King’s Daughters encourages patients to receive hospital cost estimates
prior to scheduling non-urgent hospital services.
To get the most accurate out-of-pocket cost estimates, patients with insurance
are encouraged to contact their insurance provider directly. Insurers
can help their members understand their current benefits and any copayments
or deductible requirements that are important in determining accurate
out-of-pocket cost estimates.
