Charge Description Master

A Charge Description Master (CDM), also known as a “chargemaster,” is a uniform schedule of charges represented by Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego to the public as its gross billed charge for a given service or item, including diagnosis-related groups, regardless of payor. Rady Children’s CDM is available for review with a member of our Patient Financial Services team. Please call our Customer Service Center at 858-966-4912 to request an appointment.

Q: Why can’t can I have a copy of the CDM? Why don’t you post it to your web site?

A: Due to the complexity of the CDM, we believe it is best to have a member of our financial services staff available during the review to answer any questions you may have and assist with interpretation.
