At UCSF Health, we're committed to helping patients and their families make informed decisions about every aspect of their care. This commitment includes providing information and resources, such as financial assistance and counselors, related to the potential cost of treatment at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland.

In addition, beginning in 2019, federal law requires medical centers to publish online a list of standard charges for hospital items and services, and update it at least once a year. You can click to view our current list, below, in CSV or Excel format.

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland Price List [or Charge Master]


Our price list includes all services and items that would potentially be provided to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland patients, insurers and guarantors. It does not include physician charges, which may be billed separately. Hospital bills can contain many charges, such as those for hospital rooms and special facilities (e.g., operating rooms), supplies, devices, procedures, tests and medications. As a result, as a patient, you'll probably receive several bills to cover every aspect of your visit.

Your doctor and care team will determine what services and treatments are necessary and appropriate. Your individual out-of-pocket costs will be impacted by insurance plan coverage, if any; the wide range of services provided; and other variables that affect costs – so our list should not be used to estimate your final cost.

Our goal is to help you understand your potential out-of-pocket costs before your visit. For questions about our price list, please email us at:
