Description: Texas Department of Insurance Reimbursement Rates
As a consumer, it can be hard to know how much different health care services and procedures usually cost. Even if you get an estimate from your doctor and insurance company, what can you compare it to?
That's why the Texas Department of Insurance has put together a Health Insurance Reimbursement Rates Consumer Information Guide. Using the billing codes for many common medical procedures, you can compare both in-network and out-of-network claims data. You can also see the average costs for different regions in Texas.
- Estimate costs before you have a procedure.
- Understand cost variations across regions.
- Help you make informed decisions when you are able to plan for medical services.
To use this tool, you will need to know the city or county where your medical procedure takes place. You will also need the medical code for the procedure . No personal data will be collected.

CPT is developed by the AMA as a listing of descriptive terms and five character identifying codes and modifiers for reporting medical services and procedures.
