Beginning January 2021, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and Centers are requiring hospitals to post their current, standard charges. You will be able to access the standard charges for Utah State Hospital by clicking the link below. It is important to note that the charges reflected are the amounts Utah State Hospital would bill an insurer and it may not be what will be required to be paid out of pocket by the patient.
Hospital charges are the amount a hospital bills an insurer for a service. For most patients, hospitals are reimbursed at a level well below charges. Patients covered by Medicare or Medicaid programs have hospital reimbursement rates determined by federal and state governments. Hospital charges may also include bundled procedures, personnel, services and supplies. An example would be room rates that include the space, equipment, nursing personnel and supplies.
Patients can get answers to questions about billing and insurance by contacting the Business Office at (801) 344-4215.
