MHDO Healthcare Procedure Cost Drivers

This report was originally developed in response to a request from the Task Force on Health Care Coverage for All of Maine to provide information on cost drivers for medical procedures in the State, separately for inpatient and outpatient procedures, by insurance markets. The report is based on the MHDO All-Payer Claims Data. Vist the Methodology Notes to learn more.

The interactive report below includes two views:

  1. Top 25 Cost Drivers for Inpatient Procedures Among Commercial Payers
    The most common procedures that are driving the cost of inpatient hospital stays - those that require a patient to be admitted.
  2. Top 25 Cost Drivers for Outpatient Procedures Among Commercial Payers
    The most common procedures that are driving the cost of outpatient hospital stays - those that do not require a patient to be admitted to the hospital.

The procedures are ranked by the total cost cumulated in a year for 2016 and 2017 calendar years.
