Indiana Hospital Costs

        The RAND 4.0 Hospital Transparency Study ranks Indiana’s hospital prices seventh highest in the country.

        That number rises to fourth for inpatient services only, and sixth for outpatient services.

        The study says Indiana hospitals charge insurers three times the amount they charge Medicare.

        The Indiana Legislature asked Indiana University Health, the state’s largest hospital system, to address the lowering of health care costs.

        IU Health responded saying it will reduce some of those costs by 2025.
