CMS Price Transparency
The current price schedule reflects charges for items and services provided by Brook Lane as of September 1, 2023. This type of file is commonly referred to as the hospital's "chargemaster." In Maryland, the average rate for hospital services—patient days, laboratory, and therapies—are regulated by the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC), a state regulatory agency. The HSCRC sets average hospital rates annually, on July 1 every year. Brook Lane plans to post this information semi-annually, on January 1 and July 1 to coincide with hospital rate setting and mid-year. Hospital charges do not include charges for physician services, commonly referred to as professional fees, which are separate from the hospital bill.
Although the state of Maryland sets hospital rates as of a certain date, hospital charges are allowed to fluctuate during the course of the year and detailed charges for items may be different from the average approved rate that covers a larger group of services. That means charges on individual bills for Maryland hospitals may be different from the charges posted here. This is both allowable and normal as hospitals adjust charges frequently to comply with other regulations. Rates are set on average, and the underlying service charges may vary because they are components of the average. Brook Lane and other Maryland hospitals believe it is impractical to update charges that are posted more than twice per year because charges change frequently.
Brook Lane is committed to helping our patients make informed decisions about their care. This includes helping patients understand the cost of their care as well as financial assistance that may be available.

It may not reflect the actual payment paid by governmental or insurance companies; accordingly, each patient’s financial responsibility may vary. The amount a patient pays is based on many factors including: health insurance, benefit plans and the services provided based on each patient’s unique needs.
