The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services updated their transparency guidelines requiring all
hospitals to publish standard charges on their websites. Salem Health has published its Charge
Description Master (CDM) file which includes pricing for individual services. For assistance in
better understanding costs, contact our estimates team at 503-814-2678 or
The CDM file will not provide a complete estimate for the costs of all services provided during
your visit. It does not include professional fees charged by providers. For example, if an exam
includes services by emergency medicine, radiology, pathology, etc., you may receive a separate
bill from those providers.
Your medical insurance plan benefits determine your costs. The CDM is not a guarantee that these
services are covered benefits under your medical insurance contract. If you need further help to
determine your out-of-pocket costs, contact your medical insurance company for assistance, or if
you do not have medical insurance, contact (503) 814-2678 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: This information includes services that have been provided within the last twelve months.
Items that are not priced in our CDM are indicated by “Variable” in the price field. Prices for
these services change frequently.
