Pricing Transparency

In compliance with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) guidelines, Houston Methodist has made publicly available a comprehensive list of our gross charges, negotiated rates, cash-discounted rates, and minimum and maximum negotiated rates for all hospital services across the health system.  In general, it is useful to distinguish between gross charge and negotiated rate.  Gross charge relates to the price that is billed to all patients, regardless of insurance coverage.  Negotiated rate relates to the dollar amount an insurance company agrees to pay for the service.   Final gross charges will be based on many factors, such as the time spent in surgery and recovery, specific equipment and supplies and/or implants used, additional tests required by the physician, and/or any special care or unexpected conditions or complications.


This information does not represent the amount you will owe.   Your insurance benefits will ultimately determine the amount owed (including deductibles, copay, coinsurance, and out-of-pocket maximums).  To prepare for an upcoming health care visit and to secure an estimate, we encourage you to use the online estimates tool (Shoppable Services – Estimate your Cost of Care) or contact a Patient Financial Advisor.

Prices are subject to change without notice and are updated annually.
