Beginning January 1, 2021, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services are requiring all U.S. hospitals and health systems to provide lists of standard hospital charges, average charges by types of patient groups, and a list of at least 300 Shoppable Services.
The prices depicted on Perham Health’s price transparency web page are from the current chargemaster and reflect prices that were in effect as of the new fiscal year, beginning October 1st. There could be instances where charges in an individual department or an isolated charge may change during the fiscal year and may have been updated since this information was created.
At Perham Health, we agree that transparency about the cost of health care is important and should be easy to access. Which is why in addition to the 2021 price transparency requirements, we have implemented a self-service price estimator tool. Please click the link below to access the required chargemaster files as well as Perham Health’s Price Estimator Tool.
In addition to resources on this website, there are additional resources available that provide summarized charge data at either a diagnosis-related group (DRG) level or outpatient procedure level. The Minnesota Hospital Association website can provide an estimated cost for procedures performed at Perham Health as well as cost compare to other facilities.
