Price Transparency

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) established guidance for hospitals to make available a list of their standard charges online.

We know that health care can be an unexpected expense and that the cost of health care services can be a deciding factor for many people as they plan for care. Valley Presbyterian Hospital (VPH) supports health care price transparency and tools that help patients and consumers evaluate what care is best for them and any related financial costs.

Hospital charges can help patients understand what the costs might be for certain health care services; however, they don’t provide a full picture of what patients will pay. Patients’ financial liability will depend on the full course of treatment and on the type of insurance coverage they have. To help patients understand what their potential financial liability might be for services they obtain at Valley Presbyterian Hospital, and to enable patients to compare charges for similar services across hospitals, we provide a list of standard charges in a machine-readable format. VPH standard charge information is updated annually. The charges were last updated June 14, 2021. To view the Chargemaster, please click here. (Please note this will open as a Microsoft Excel file.)

VPH encourages all healthcare patients and families to talk with their providers and health plan to understand what they will pay. We offer financial counseling for those experiencing hardship during any point throughout their care. If you have questions, please contact Patient Financial Services at 818.902.2913.

We have created a searchable tool to allow patients to look up anticipated charges for healthcare services. Please keep in mind, it may not be possible to know ahead of time which services will be needed to address each patient’s specific medical needs. The tool provides an estimate of anticipated charges based on the available information. Please note that this tool works best using a Chrome browser.
