Cost of VA PITTSBURGH HEALTHCARE SYSTEM - UNIV DR, Compare to National and State Averages

Understanding how much a hospital is going to cost is extremely difficult. Hospitals themselves actively obscure what they charge and have negotiated different rates with different insurers. Then you have the problem of the wide variety of treatments which the VA PITTSBURGH HEALTHCARE SYSTEM - UNIV DR provides.

To provide some standard metric to compare hospital costs, CMS publishes the MSPB (or "Medicare Spending Per Beneficiary"). Even though you may not be on Medicare, this metric may still be useful.
