As of January, 2019, all hospitals are federally mandated to provide our standard charges for items and services provided. This is part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), and the rule reads:
Standard Hospital Charges
“Each hospital operating within the United States shall for each year establish (and update) and make public (in accordance with guidelines developed by the Secretary) a list of the hospital’s standard charges for items and services provided by the hospital, including for diagnosis-related groups established under Section 1395ww(d)(4) of this title. 42 USC § 300gg-18.”
You can find this information in the .csv (machine-readable) file here.
