Charge Description Master (CDM)

The Charge Description Master (CDM), or chargemaster, is a comprehensive listing of items that could be billed to a patient, payer or healthcare provider.

Effective July 1, 2004, the State of California established the Payer's Bill of Rights, which requires that each hospital:

  • Make a copy of its CDM available to the public
  • Have available by request a list of the 20 most common procedures or services and five room and bed rates

In compliance with California law, a hardcopy of Cedars-Sinai's chargemaster is available to the public for viewing Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (excluding holidays) by visiting:
