Medicare Provider Charge Data
As part of the Obama administration’s work to make our health care system more affordable and accountable, data are being released that show significant variation across the country and within communities in what providers charge for common services. These data include information comparing the charges for the 100 most common inpatient services and 30 common outpatient services. Providers determine what they will charge for items and services provided to patients and these charges are the amount the providers bill for an item or service.
Please use the navigation bar to the left to view more information on the inpatient and outpatient analyses and to access the data for download. Data are being made available in Microsoft Excel (.xlsx) format and comma separated values (.csv) format.
For answers to any questions about the data, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Inquiries regarding this data can be sent to MedicareProviderChargeData@cms.hhs.gov.
