Charges and Fees

The Ohio State University Medical Center is complying with state law by providing this price list containing our charges for room and board and for common procedures in our emergency department, operating rooms and labor & delivery unit; for physical, occupational and pulmonary therapy; and for X-rays and laboratory analyses.

Ohio State's Medical Center is committed to providing high-quality personalized health care. The charges at Ohio State's Medical Center reflect the level of medical care available at central Ohio's only academic medical center. Care provided in this environment is supported by and contributes to the latest medical research discoveries.

Because of this dynamic learning and training environment, Ohio State's Medical Center also invests in the most advanced medical equipment and offers specialized care not found elsewhere in central Ohio, including organ transplantation and severe burn care, as well as the highest-rated trauma and neonatal intensive care units available in the region. Patients here are treated by physicians, nurses and other staff who are training the next generation of America's healthcare providers. We believe prices for care at Ohio State's Medical Center are similar to charges at other academic medical centers in the Midwest region that offer comparable services.

The Medical Center's charges are the same for all patients, but patients' share of payment will vary depending on the type of coverage they have with their insurance company or government-sponsored program.

We are committed to providing care to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Patients who have no insurance or those who are unable to pay their medical bills should consult with our admitting and billing staff to determine whether they are eligible for a variety of financial assistance programs and/or discounts. Financial counselors are available between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays at 614-293-0860.
