Compare the Costs & Quality of Healthcare Procedures in Maine

Know What to Expect Before You Receive Care

More information. Better decisions.

CompareMaine shows the average cost of common healthcare procedures at different facilities in Maine. The average cost represented on this website is the average amount paid by an insurance company and the insured individual to a facility and/or provider for a healthcare procedure. The average cost does not represent what an individual will pay for the procedure, as that cost varies based on individual circumstances. MHDO makes every effort to provide accurate information on this website. Healthcare providers and insurance companies included on CompareMaine are sent the cost data to review for accuracy before it is published on this website.

You can also see patient experience ratings and how Maine hospitals compare on patient safety. The cost and quality of healthcare services can vary among providers, and you may have a choice in where you receive care. Get started

The Maine Health Data Organization, in collaboration with the Maine Quality Forum, is required by Maine State law to promote the transparency of healthcare cost and quality information via a publicly accessible website.
