      $19,064
      $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 ?
      19
      $18,805
      $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.
    • Blood Transfusion ?
      13
      $19,725
      $14,940.76

    • Gallbladder Removal ?
      54

      Nuclear medicine is a method of imaging and diagnosing diseases by using radioactive substances. A very mildly radioactive substance is injected into the body part in question and special cameras track the progress of the substance through the body. The listed paid amounts are for nuclear medicine examinations of the digestive system. Liverscans and gallbladder scans are the most common digestive system nuclear medicine examinations.

      An ultrasound, or sonography, is a method of creating images using sound waves. A device emits sound at an extremely high frequency and then records the sound waves as they reflect off structures in the body. A computer interprets those sound waves and creates an image. Ultrasounds listed here do not include specialized ultrasounds such as echocardiographs or fetus examinations as it relates to pregnancy

      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 featured are for x-rays of the abdominal and pelvic area.

  • Heart Attack

    Show/Hide Overview
    A heart attack (also called AMI or acute myocardial infarction) happens when the arteries leading to the heart become blocked and the blood supply is slowed or stopped. These measures show some of the process of care provided, if appropriate for most adults who have had a heart attack. The outpatient Heart Attack or Chest Pain measures apply to patients transferred to an acute care facility for a higher level of care. For more information, click on the column headings.

A patient formally admitted who is discharged or dies on the same day is counted as one patient day, regardless of the number of hours the patient occupies a hospital bed.

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.
