    • Abdominal Drainage ?
      14
      $21,132
      $17,500.78
      Percutaneous abdominal drainage is the placement of a small plastic tube to be used as a drain in the abdominal cavity. This is most commonly used to treat abscesses or fluid buildup in the abdomen as a result of disease or infection. Percutaneous abdominal drains are also be used to treat blockages in the urinary system.
    • Appendectomy ?
      21
      $19,914
      $18,523.73
      An appendectomy is the surgical removal of the appendix, a small organ located on the lower portion of the small intestine on the right side of the body. This is most commonly a laparoscopic surgery. A laparoscopic surgery is a method of surgery that uses instruments inserted through small incisions. These types of surgeries are considered minimally invasive, because they do not require a large open incision. This results in less overall damage to the body, decreased healing times, reduced pain and a lower risk of infection. Appendectomies are performed in the inpatient setting when the patient's condition requires additional monitoring or recovery time.
    • Bowel Removal ?
      15
      $34,227
      $34,854.52

    • Colonoscopy ?
      10
      $16,198
      $15,332.98
      A colonoscopy is an examination of the large intestine using an endoscope. An endoscope is a slender device that is inserted into the body and used to examine internal organs by capturing video and displaying it on a monitor for the doctor. It is most commonly performed to screen for cancer. Colonoscopies occur in the inpatient setting when the patient's condition is severe or the patient needs to be monitored for a more extended period of time after the colonoscopy is performed.
    • Coronary Bypass ?
      14
      $110,019
      $83,134.84
      Coronary artery bypass surgery is a procedure used to perform a bypass of one or many coronary arteries of the heart that are blocked. This is performed by diverting the existing artery, or by harvesting a vein out of the patient’s leg and attaching it to the blocked artery to create a bypass. This procedure is most often an open-heart surgery requiring a stay of four to five days in the hospital.
    • Gallbladder Removal ?
      22
      $21,400
      $21,734.29
      Gallbladder surgery is the surgical removal of the gallbladder. This is most commonly due to the presence of hard mineral deposits in the gallbladder known as gall stones. Like appendectomies, gallbladder surgery is most often performed as a laparoscopic surgery. Gallbladder surgery is performed in the inpatient setting when the patient's condition requires additional monitoring or recovery time.
    • Heart Catheterization ?
      14
      $17,676
      $17,982.19
      Heart catheterization is the use of thin hollow tubes, or catheters, to examine the inside of the heart and blood vessels around the heart. Heart catheters may also be used to inject dye for use in imaging, or to collect samples of heart muscle. Heart catheters are inserted into the large veins in the leg, arm or neck and threaded through the blood vessels toward the heart. Doctors observe the advancement of the catheter using a special x-ray camera called a fluoroscope.
    • Heart Valve Replacement ?
      15
      $100,994
      $84,754.35
      Heart valve replacement surgery is a procedure to replace or repair one of the four valves in the heart that control the flow of blood. Heart valve surgery is an open-heart procedure that requires an extended hospital stay. During this procedure, the patient is attached to a heart-lung machine, which continues to cycle blood and oxygen though the patient. The heart is then stopped with a process called cardioplegia, allowing the replacement to be performed on a still, unbeating, heart.
    • Hip Replacement ?
      21
      $30,000
      $34,376.15
      Hip replacement surgery is a procedure in which the hip joint is replaced with an artificial implant. Most commonly the head of the femur — the bone in the thigh — is removed and replaced with an artificial one, usually made from titanium. The hip socket is also replaced with an artificial cup, generally made of special plastics. These surgeries are complicated and lengthy and typically require a two-to three-day hospital stay.
    • Hysterectomy ?
      17
      $21,148
      $18,947.88

    • Knee Replacement ?
      50
      $37,512
      $33,904.92
      Knee replacement surgery is a procedure to replace knee joints with artificial implants. The bottom portion of the femur — the bone in the thigh — and the top portion of the tibia — the bone in the lower leg — are replaced with metal implants. These surgeries require large incisions and are complicated and lengthy, typically requiring a two - to three - day hospital stay.
    • ORIF ?
      12
      $25,798
      $27,304.74
      Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is a procedure to repair a bone fracture using surgery. Plates and screws are used to align and secure broken and displaced bones. Like closed reduction and internal fixation (CRIF) procedures reported earlier, ORIF surgeries occur in the inpatient setting as a part of care related to larger trauma events, such as a car accident. However, ORIF surgeries are used for more severe fractures that cannot be aligned using CRIF procedures.
    • PTCA ?
      29
      $43,437
      $33,235.27
      Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is a procedure to open up narrowed coronary arteries by inflating a small balloon inside the artery. This is a specific type of heart catheterization performed in the inpatient setting. The act of opening the blocked artery often results in some damage to the vessel and requires the patient to be monitored for a day or two. In some cases, PTCA is used as an immediate treatment to patients experiencing a heart attack. PTCA is used as an alternative to coronary bypass surgery.
    • Spinal Fusion ?
      18
      $44,445
      $48,162.75

      $223
      $130.15
      An x-ray is a method of imaging the body by exposing it to a small amount of electromagnetic radiation. Special undeveloped film is placed behind the body part that is to be imaged. The x-ray machine then emits radiation toward the body and film, causing the film to develop. More dense areas of the body — such as bones — absorb or block more of the radiation, causing those areas of the film to be more underdeveloped, thus creating a detailed image of the bones.The paid amounts listed are for x-rays of the arms and legs.

The dollar amount of free care, based on a hospital’s full established rates, provided to patients who are determined by the hospital to be unable to pay their bill. The determination of a patient’s ability to pay is based on the hospital’s charity care policy. Hospitals will typically determine a patient’s inability to pay by examining a variety of factors such as individual and family income, assets, employment status or availability of alternative sources of funds. Determination of charity care status is made prior to admission if the patient has requested and applied for financial assistance. Charity care status may be granted at a later date depending on the circumstances of the admission, such as an emergency admission, no request for financial assistance prior to admission, or lack of information about the patient’s financial status at the time of admission. Financial assistance provided by the hospital may pertain to all or a portion of the patient’s bill.

Bad debt is the unpaid obligation for care, based on a hospital’s full established rates, for patients who are unwilling to pay their bill. Unlike charity care, bad debt arises in situations where the patient has either not requested financial assistance or does not qualify for financial assistance. In these cases the hospital will generate a bill for services provided. For uninsured patients, the amount of bad debt can pertain to all or any portion of the bill that is not paid. For patients with insurance, certain amounts that are the patient’s responsibility – such as deductibles and coinsurance – are expensed as bad debt if not paid.
