Price Transparency

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health is committed to helping patients make informed decisions about their care. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires hospitals to publish standard charges and pricing on websites in a machine-readable format. The Standard Charges file does not include insurance deductibles or other patient-specific insurance information or financial assistance discounts. We recommend using our cost estimator tool or contacting your insurance provider to get an estimate of out-of-pocket costs.

You can download a list of our standard charges by hospital:

Please note the intent of this file is to be machine-readable in accordance with federal requirements. Please refer to our Cost Estimator Tool (CHI Franciscan) or Cost Estimator Tool (Virginia Mason Medical Center) for access to consumer-friendly pricing information on shoppable services.

The following Standard Charges Machine Readable File is posted in a CMS-compliant .JSON file format. Per 45 CFR 180.20, Machine Readable File format means “a digital representation of data or information in a file that can be imported or read into a computer system for further processing. Examples of machine-readable formats include, but are not limited to, .XML, .JSON and .CSV formats.” Because the files are intended to be read by machines for further processing, these files are not intended to be user-friendly. Please use our Cost Estimator Tool (CHI Franciscan) or Cost Estimator Tool (Virginia Mason Medical Center) for access to user-friendly consumer pricing information on shoppable services.

Our hospital used the recommended format/schema provided by CMS for .JSON machine-readable file development. The detailed schema can be found here on the CMS Hospital Price Transparency Resources page.
