Compare Estimated Payments & Quality of Patient Care in Maine

Know What to Expect Before You Receive Care

More information. Better decisions.

CompareMaine shows the average amount paid for common healthcare procedures at different healthcare settings in Maine. The average total payment represented on this website is the average dollar amount paid by an insurance company, including the individual’s cost share, to a healthcare setting and/or provider for a healthcare service or procedure. The average payment displayed on CompareMaine does not represent a person’s actual payments, as that amount varies based on individual circumstances.

In addition to costs of procedures, CompareMaine displays prescription drug payments and trends in healthcare payments over time. Payments vary among healthcare settings, and you may have a choice in where you receive care. Get started

The quality of care also varies among providers. CompareMaine reports on the quality of care at Maine hospitals, including the Five-Star Overall Hospital Quality Rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which shows how well a hospital performs across different areas.

MHDO makes every effort to provide accurate information on CompareMaine. Healthcare settings and insurance companies included on this website are sent the payment and quality data to review for accuracy before it is published.
