Jasper General Hospital Charges

The Affordable Care Act requires hospitals to make public their standard charges for items and services provided by the hospital . The CMS final rule  allows hospitals to either make public a list of their charges (their charge master or another form of their choice) or their policy for allowing the public to view a list of those charges. The stated intent of the federal rule is to help patients understand what their potential financial liability might be for services provided and to compare charges for similar services across hospitals.
