Reimbursement from Medicare & Medicaid

At this hospital, 73% of inpatient discharges and 70% of outpatient visits are covered by Medicare and Medicaid.

A large share of hospital reimbursement comes from Medicare and Medicaid, which do not cover the cost of care. This underpayment is driven by large volumes of inpatient and outpatient services provided to individuals covered by these public insurance programs.
