A new report by the nonpartisan RAND Corp. looks at what privately insured patients pay at Colorado hospitals versus what Medicare would pay for the same service. The numbers below are expressed as an average percentage of all charges relative to Medicare rates. For example, a hospital at 300% charges privately insured patients three times what Medicare pays.
Note: Some Colorado hospitals did not receive calcualtions from RAND.
= Hospital is part of a health system
= Hospital is independently run
