Hospital pricing

Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula strives to maintain prices for services that are comparable to those of other Northern California hospitals.

If you would like to get an estimate of the price of a procedure, we recommend that you call our estimate line. We also provide some pricing through our free patient portal, MyChart, which gives patients access to their health information online.

We provide an online listing of standard hospital charges, as required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). That list can be found at the link below. It is important to note, however, that the charges listed may not reflect what patients or their insurance companies or benefits providers actually pay for services. The actual payments are affected by factors including negotiated health plan rates, fixed government rates, and cash-payment discounts. In addition, charges for physician services are not included in the list; Community Hospital does not directly employ the doctors who may provide service or care during hospitalization, so their charges would be billed separately.

The list reflects charges as of January 1, 2020. They may have changed since then due to changes by supply vendors, new technology, added or eliminated services, etc. It also may be difficult to compare the charges with those of other hospitals, as different goods, supplies, or procedures could be included in a similarly named description.

List of standard charges

Average charges for 25 common procedures

We also provide the average charge for 25 common procedures at Community Hospital. Again, these are charges, not necessarily what patients or insurers actually pay, and they can vary depending on many factors, as noted above.

Price estimates will be provided to patients upon request. Patients may contact the Patient Access price estimate line, (831) 625-4715.

Actual costs may vary based on individual circumstances.
