Dear Colleagues,

Earlier today, I received a call from a hospital CFO in Colorado.  He said that National Public Radio (NPR) and Kaiser Health News just released a news story that included a patient bill at Penrose Hospital.  The article lists Penrose Hospital's price for CPT 74177 - CT Scan of Abdomen and Pelvis as $9,885.73, and the CFO wanted to know how his hospital's price compared.

Hospital Pricing Specialists routinely downloads and standardizes the hospital machine-readable files.  Based on our latest download of Colorado hospitals data, we were able to confirm Penrose Hospital's price (to the penny) for CPT 74177.  If you'd like to order a full pricing report of all CPT codes and up to 12 hospitals, based on our latest download of machine-readable files, just reply to this email and I'll send you a quote.  With increasing price transparency coverage in the media, you can't afford to have indefensible prices.

Here's our list of Colorado hospital prices for this CPT code among Colorado hospitals:

Moreover, if you'd like more information on our Transparent Pricing Review® that compares prices to our proprietary machine-readable database and then recommends appropriate market prices, feel free to schedule a time to talk on my private calendar:
