Total charges averaged $46,200 for a mean 5.3-day stay when children and adolescents were hospitalized with any diagnosis of a rheumatologic condition along with other medical conditions. With a primary rheumatologic diagnosis, the stay was about the same (5.1 days), and mean charges only slightly higher at $48,500. Age and sex were not significant factors in length of hospital stay and average charges for a rheumatologic condition diagnosis. Total hospital charges for primary rheumatologic condition diagnosis discharges in 2012 were $203.8 million. (Reference Table 7.9 PDF CSV)
