Vermont – Compare Hospital ER Prices (2019)

Compare published prices for hospital Emergency Room visits, for all 14 hospitals in VT, according to level of severity and complexity.  Statewide average ER price is $341 for Level 1 minor problem, before adding tests or procedures. Very few visits are this “simple”. Level 2 low severity ER visit average price is $501 before adding test costs.  Level 3 moderate severity and complexity ER visit (the most common in the US)  average price is $843 for hospital and physician charges, excluding tests and medications etc. Level 4 average price is $1292. Top base price for a Level 5 visit is $1830 per visit ($1275 hospital, $555 doctor fee). For consumer planning purposes, billing code Levels 3, 4 and 5 are most likely to occur.  A recent study of Medicare patients found that the most common ER visit charge was for a Level 5 visit, right at the top of the complexity scale. Both facility and physician charges are shown – an amazing show of leadership in price transparency. Springfield Hospital’s Level 5 charge is $1215; the University of Vermont Medical Center’s Level 5 ER charge is just shy of $3000. Prices do NOT include lab tests, imaging tests or procedures during the ER visit. Prices are good from October 2018 to September 2019.  Table 3D.
