    Crozer-Keystone statement on hospital charges

    “It is important to note that the focus of the recently released CMS report has been on charges, not payments. Even though our charges are high, it does not mean that we are receiving high or unreasonable payments from consumers or insurers. For example, the report cited that our charges for major joint replacement are $322,000, while in fact our average payment for that procedure was $26,000 per case.”
