Oroville Hospital has reduced its charges by 30 percent.

The hospital spent three years negotiating with health insurance companies to be able to reduce its charges and make health care more affordable for its customers, said hospital President and CEO Bob Wentz.

The change became effective Dec. 1, 2015.

“Our team has spent a lot of time reviewing hospital charges to better assess how we could make medical care more affordable,” Wentz said. Oroville Hospital is using what the California Hospital Association calls “modern pricing.”
