The Center for Community Solutions hosted a webinar on Friday, September 4 to discuss the wide variations in hospital pricing.  

Loren Anthes, a fellow and the William C. and Elizabeth M. Treuhaft Chair for Health Planning, recently wrote about how Community Solutions sought out pricing information for Ohio’s hospitals, and found that there didn’t seem to be any consistent relationship between price and hospital type or business model. After comparing the prices of six common procedures, we found vast price differences from hospital to hospital. Of the procedures we compared, inpatient bypass surgery had the biggest range in price – with more than $200,000 between the highest and lowest prices for that procedure.
