2015 Charge Master Fee Schedule is in, check your rates against the averages for LA County Facilities.

Attention all health care owners, we have finalized our 2015 Charge Master based on the average charges and fees for all health care facilities in the Los Angeles County area.  This charge master can be used to validate that your fees are within the normal acceptable range for your services offered.  If not, by all means, raise the price.  With the same token, if your fees are over-flated, then reduce them.  This will help to soften the blow of many denials based on  exaggerated fees comparatively.  Enjoy and let me know what you think!!!
