Tuesday January 1, 2019 - New Price Transparency Regulation

Effective 1/1/2019 the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires all Hospitals to post their entire Charge Description Master (CDM) to their website.  Reviewing the CDM can be confusing as many services provided by hospitals have several individual charges; a visit to an
emergency room may consist of charges associated with the level of nursing services (facility level charge), physician services (professional level charge), pharmacy charges, supply charges, along with any specific procedures that were performed. You may also receive charges from outside medical facilities in addition to those from North Shore Health such as services provided by your Sawtooth Mountain Clinic physician during an inpatient stay or from a radiologist for reading and interpreting your CT exam.
 
Our healthcare system is complex. The staff at North Shore Health is here to help you understand the charges for the services you receive. For more information call 218- 387-3040.

Visit our services page for full list of charges.
