About This Site

This site allows healthcare consumers to compare information about various services and charges at New Jersey’s acute care hospitals. Hospital pricing and medical billing can be complicated. This site, first launched in 2007, aims to answer consumer questions about hospital pricing, medical bills and assistance programs.

Our search feature allows users to find hospital charges for a variety of medical services. Most healthcare consumers will never be expected to pay these rates. These “charges” are more like a sticker price on a car, a starting point that is reduced dramatically for most customers. Insurance companies, Medicare and Medicaid all pay hospitals at rates far below these charges. Those actual amounts vary from one case to the next and unfortunately can’t be accurately included in this listing.


Why Are
Charges So High?

Hospital “charges” are a price point listed on paper but actually are used very little in the real world. They are the result of a broken and
complex system in which hospitals are paid for their services.
