Patients should have access to the information they need to make the best care decisions for themselves and their families. Logan County Hospital is committed to improving patients’ access to information on the price of their care, and specifically, on what the patient will pay out of pocket. We urge patients to call the facility for their out of pocket costs related to hospital services.
Requirements under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) allow for facility pricing transparency. Section 2718 of the ACA requires “Each hospital operating within the United States shall for each year establish (and update) and made public (in accordance with guidelines developed by the Secretary) a list of the hospital’s standard charges for items and services provided by the hospital including for diagnosis-related groups established under Section 1886(d)(4) of the Social Security Act.”
The Secretary of the United States Department of Health and Human Services subsequently issued the 2015 IPPS (Inpatient Prospective Payment Systems) final rule requiring: “Our guidelines for implementing Section 2718€ of the Public Health Service Act are that hospitals either make public a list of their standard charges (whether that be the charge master itself or in another form of their choice), or their policies for allowing the public to view a list of these charges in response to an inquiry.”
The 2019 IPPS final rule requires: “Effective January 1, 2019, hospitals must make a list of their current standard charges available via the Internet on a public facing website in machine-readable format.”
These requirements apply to all hospitals and critical access hospitals. Logan County Hospital is in compliance with the above mention statutes. The prices listed in the charge master are the base cost for each service. Patients should contact Logan County Hospital Business Office at 785-672-3211 for assistance in determining their individual out of pocket cost.
