NYS Health Connector - Volume and Estimated Cost of Hospital Services - NYAPD

Cardiac surgery, joint replacement, spinal and bariatric surgery, and birth are all major hospital events. This dashboard shows the number of times surgeries and procedures were performed and the estimated costs at hospitals across New York State. The estimated facility costs show that the cost for these procedures may vary between hospitals. There are many reasons for variation in estimated cost, including how complex your situation is (severity), overall number of procedures performed, location, or the type of medical care provided. The amount a private insurer pays a hospital or the amount that an individual consumer would pay may be different than the costs shown on this dashboard. The goal of this dashboard is to support consumers in understanding that variation occurs, and that discussing differences in cost and volume for these procedures with a medical professional can help consumers make informed health care decisions.
