Estimate Your Hospital Bill

Are you planning to receive treatment at a Johns Hopkins Medicine hospital? We want to make the cost of your care easy to understand. Our price transparency program aims to help you understand and plan for your health care costs.

Our online cost estimate tool (available in English and Spanish) helps you estimate the hospital fee for your inpatient or outpatient care at our six hospitals. Estimates are available for 300 services and procedures.

The estimate is for hospital fees only, and it is good for 30 days. Hospital fees include the cost of your room and supplies for your medical service. This is not a complete estimate of your care cost.

The estimate does not include physician or provider fees, or the cost of medication, medical equipment and homecare services. Your actual charges may be different from the estimated charges. This depends on the services you receive and the coverage provided by your insurance plan(s).
