General Notes

Detailed charges are submitted charges that pertain to a specified revenue center or group of revenue centers. Beginning in 2005, charges associated with specific revenue centers stored in REVCDn are retained in REVCHGn. Charges specific to a group of revenue centers are stored in CHGn. Prior to 2005, both types of detailed charges were stored in the HCUP data element CHGn.

Detailed charges (CHGn) are retained as provided by the data source, including cents and negative values. Zero charges are retained as a zero and are NOT set to missing (.). Charges greater than $9,999,999 are set to invalid (.A). No edit checks are performed on this data element during HCUP processing.

Beginning in 1995, the source reports detailed charges. Arizona uses the UB-92 revenue codes to group similar charges. For example, CHG8 "Nursery" includes all charges to the three-digit UB-92 revenue codes that begin with 17. This will include "Routine Newborn," revenue code 170, and "Neo-Natal ICU," revenue code 175. Although detailed charges are supplied by the data source, they are frequently not reported. The analyst should consider the frequency of non-missing values before using these data elements for analysis.

Due to an error in HCUP processing for 2003-2004, two detailed charges were not properly assigned. CHG38 (Osteopathic Services) and CHG39 (Ambulance) were read from an incorrect location. These charges should be excluded from analyses of 2003-2004 data. No other years were affected.

Beginning in 1993, Iowa includes professional fees (CHG1) in its total charges if the hospital combines hospital and professional bills. Professional fees are subtracted from total charges (TOTCHG and TOTCHG_X) during HCUP processing to make Iowa total charges comparable to data from other states. Beginning with 2003, Iowa no longer collects separate professional fees (CHG1).

From 1998 through 2007, Iowa provided 22 additional detailed charges for a total of 23 detailed charges. They are as follows:

New Jersey

Detailed charges associated with the groups of revenue centers were discontinued in 2008.

CHG34 Non-Acute Ancillary Charges (NAC) 191-199, 240-249

Warning: In 1995, confusion over the mapping of Uniform Billing revenue codes to Neonatal Intensive Care Unit charges (CHG8) and newborn nursery charges (CHG9) caused some hospitals to erroneously place NICU charges (CHG8) under nursery charges (CHG9). This does not affect other years.

New Jersey includes professional fees in several charge categories because professional fees are aggregated within the revenue centers and the fees cannot be separated. There is no documentation available from the data source to determine where professional fees were included.


Starting in 2008, Oregon provided a separate file with revenue codes, revenue charges, and units. After further research, the detailed revenue charges appears to be reliable and will be used instead of the 10 charge buckets. For the 1995 - 2007 HCUP Oregon databases, ten detailed charge categories are available:

CHGn Description UB-92 Revenue Codes
CHG1 Ancillary charges 220-229, 232, 240-999, 1006-9999
CHG2 Room and board charges 100-219, 230-231, 233-239, 1000-1005
CHG3 Anesthesiology charges 370-379
CHG4Laboratory charges 300-319
CHG5 Labor and delivery charges 720-729
CHG6 Oncology charges 280-289, 330-339
CHG7 Operating room charges 360-369, 710-719
CHG8 Pharmacy charges 250-269, 630-639
CHG9 Radiology charges 320-329, 340-349, 350-359, 400-409, 610-619
CHG10 Other charges All other revenue codes

The ancillary charge (CHG1) is the sum of all charges except room and board charges (CHG3-CHG10).

Some hospitals reported detailed charges (CHG1-CHG10) but not total charges (TOTCHG and TOTCHG_X) on charity bills since there are no charges to the patient. Other hospitals did not submit data for the detailed charge categories (CHG1-CHG10), although total charges (TOTCHG and TOTCHG_X) were reported.

Detailed charges (CHGn) are associated with the identified revenue centers (REVCDn) and the units of service (UNITn). For example, CHG1 applies to the revenue center in REVCD1 and the units of service specified in UNIT1.

Units are not required for all revenue sources; the units field may be coded as missing (.) or zero.

For 2000-2004, if total charges are identified in the detail charges (REVCDn = "001"), the corresponding detail charge, unit, and revenue code are set to missing. Beginning with 2005, total charges are kept in the detailed charges.
