Making Our Charges Public & Transparent

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 Payment Classification.

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.
