Pricing Transparency

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford recognizes the importance of patients’ access to information and is committed to helping patients better anticipate out-of-pocket costs for specific services or course of treatment. Lucile Packard’s Charge Description Master, also known as CDM, contains the prices of all services, goods, and procedures for which a separate charge exists. Packard Children's offers this list of charges for you to access.

Important note: The available list of charges on the CDM is not a true estimate of your out-of-pocket costs for services at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. Your out-of-pocket costs will depend upon actual services that you receive, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital’s negotiated rates with your insurance plan and your insurance coverage. Your insurance coverage determines your co-payment, co-insurance percentage, and annual deductible. The CDM does not represent the negotiated rates (also often referred to as “contracted rates”) between Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and your insurance company. If the services which you receive are subject to co-insurance, the negotiated rate will be used to calculate that portion of your out-of-pocket cost.
