Hospital price transparency is coming, and it will be ugly.

Hospital Pricing Specialists just completed a national study of comparing over 4,741 hospital prices for CPT 97110 – 15 minutes of physical therapy treatment.  The study was based on very recent claims data through the 3rd quarter of 2019 – less than 5 months old.

This 15-minute physical therapy service is considered a “Shoppable Service” by CMS.  Therefore, come 1/1/21, all U.S. hospitals must publish their price for this service.  If the implementation date was today, there would be a lot of embarrassed hospitals.  For example, Las Palmas Medical Center in El Paso, Texas charges $1,119 for 15 minutes of physical therapy, compared to $22 at the Texas Institute for Surgery in Dallas, TX.  That’s a 50X price variation among hospitals in the same state.

If your hospital’s shoppable services prices haven’t been benchmarked to the local market in the last 12 months, I would strongly encourage you to do it now.  For only $4K, we offer an outpatient pricing report that compares all of your hospital’s CPT/HCPCS prices to that of 14 hospitals you select, using the latest claims data.  Moreover, until the end of February, HFMA members are eligible for a 25% discount and Hospitals < 50 Beds receive a 50% discount.

In the meantime, here’s the Top 3 Lowest/Highest Priced hospitals.  Email me if you’d like the full list of 4,741 hospitals.
