The VHI Healthcare Pricing Report was created under Virginia law 32.1-276.5:1 to increase healthcare transparency in Virginia. The healthcare services in this report are those provided by doctors, emergency rooms, hospitals, diagnostic and surgical centers.
The services reported were recommended to Virginia Health Information (VHI) by a workgroup of healthcare stakeholders. After VHI Board of Directors review, the list of services was approved by the State Health Commissioner. Commercial insurance allowed amounts are based on 2015 paid commercial claims within the Virginia All Payer Claims Database and exclude government programs like Medicare and Medicaid.
Virginia Health Information (VHI) is an independent non-profit organization. VHI works under contracts with state agencies and others to provide consumers with information on healthcare cost and quality.
Because insurance plans may have different benefits, our report does not show you exactly what you will pay. This information may be available from your insurance carrier. A link to price transparency tools available through individual health insurance carriers is provided within each pricing report for more information.
