On August 2, 2018, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule (CMS-1694-F) requiring that all hospitals “make available a list of their current standard charges via the Internet in a machine readable format, and to update this information at least annually.” Central Vermont Medical Center is pleased to provide this information to our patients, as we recognize that making good health care decisions requires having all of the facts and understanding your options.

In compliance with the new federal regulation, this price list contains our hospital standard charges as of October 1, 2019. In addition to the required list, we have also chosen to provide our physician standard charges. Standard charges are the same for all patients, however financial responsibility may vary based on a patient’s individual medical insurance plan as well as our organization’s contracts with insurance companies. Uninsured or international patients may be eligible for discounts. Financial counselors are available to assist all patients early in the process to identify eligibility for additional financial assistance and to estimate out of pocket expenses.

Beginning January 1, 2019, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires that all hospitals make available a list of their current standard charges via the Internet in a machine readable format, and update this information at least annually.

Central Vermont Medical Center is pleased to provide this information to our patients, as we recognize that making good health care decisions requires having all of the facts and understanding your options.

What has been posted and what does it mean?

To comply with the new federal regulation, the Central Vermont Medical Center has posted a spreadsheet that contains our hospital standard charges as of October 1, 2019. In addition to the required list, we have also chosen to provide our physician standard charges.

How should patients use this information?

While Central Vermont Medical Center is pleased to offer this information to patients, it is important to note that the actual amount any individual patient is asked to pay varies based on factors, and does not usually reflect the exact amounts in these spreadsheets. Factors include an individual’s medical insurance plan and the organization’s contracts with insurance companies. Uninsured or international patients are eligible for discounts.

Financial counselors are available to assist all patients early in the process to identify eligibility for additional financial assistance and to estimate out of pocket expenses.
