The data used to generate these numbers come from the AHA’s Annual Survey of Hospitals, which is the nation’s most comprehensive source of hospital financial data. This fact sheet provides the definition of underpayment and technical information on how this figure is calculated on a cost basis for Medicare and Medicaid.</p> <p>Payment rates for Medicare and Medicaid, with the exception of managed care plans, are set by law rather than through a negotiation process, as with private insurers. These payment rates are currently set below the costs of providing care, resulting in underpayment. Payments made by managed care plans contracting with the Medicare and Medicaid programs are generally negotiated with the hospital.</p> <p>Hospital participation in Medicare and Medicaid is voluntary. However, as a condition for receiving federal tax exemption for providing health care to the community, not-for-profit hospitals are required to care for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. Also, Medicare and Medicaid account for more than 60 percent of all care provided by hospitals. Consequently, very few hospitals can elect not to participate in Medicare and Medicaid.</p> <p>Bridging the gaps created by government underpayments from Medicare and Medicaid is only one of the benefits that hospitals provide to their communities. In a separate fact sheet, AHA has calculated the cost of uncompensated hospital care (financial assistance and bad debt), which also are benefits to the community. While these two fact sheets contain important information, they do not account for the many other services and programs that hospitals provide to meet identified community needs.</p> <h2>DEFINING UNDERPAYMENT</h2> <p><strong>Underpayment</strong> is the difference between the costs incurred and the reimbursement received for delivering care to patients. Underpayment occurs when the payment received is less than the costs of providing care, i.e., the amount paid by hospitals for the personnel, technology and other goods and services required to provide hospital care is more than the amount paid to them by Medicare or Medicaid for providing that care. Underpayment is not the same as a contractual&nbsp;allowance, which is the difference between hospital charges and government program payments.</p> <h2>CALCULATING UNDERPAYMENTS</h2> <p>Payments received by hospitals for Medicare and Medicaid services are reported for each hospital in the AHA Annual Survey.1 Hospitals also report their gross charges for Medicare and Medicaid services provided. Gross charges for these services are then translated into costs. This is done by multiplying each hospital’s gross charges by each hospital’s overall cost-to-charge ratio, which is the ratio of a hospital’s costs (total expenses exclusive of bad debt) to its charges (gross patient and other operating revenue).</p> <p><span style="font-size:12.0pt"><span style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-family:Wingdings">§ </span></span></span>Payment = Amount Received</p> <p><span style="font-size:12.0pt"><span style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-family:Wingdings">§ </span></span></span>Cost-to-charge Ratio&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; =&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Total Expenses Exclusive of Bad Debt&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;__________________________________________&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Gross Patient Revenue + Other Operating Revenue</p> <p><span style="font-size:12.0pt"><span style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-family:Wingdings">§ </span></span></span>Costs = Gross Charges x Cost-to-Charge Ratio</p> <p>The resulting payment and cost figures are aggregated across all hospitals for Medicare and Medicaid.

Other special hospitals include obstetrics and gynecology; eye, ear, nose, and throat; long term acute-care; rehabilitation; orthopedic; and other individually described specialty services. Community hospitals include academic medical centers or other teaching hospitals if they are nonfederal short-term hospitals.  Excluded are hospitals not accessible by the general public, such as prison hospitals or college infirmaries.</p> <p id="footnote2">2. <strong>Other hospitals</strong> include nonfederal long term care hospitals and hospital units within an institution such as a prison hospital or school infirmary. Long term care hospitals may be defined by different methods; here they include other hospitals with an average length of stay of 30 or more days.</p> <p id="footnote3">3. <strong>Intensive care bed counts</strong> are reported on the AHA Annual Survey by approximately 80% of hospitals. Therefore, the Intensive care bed counts have been supplemented with FY2018 data reported in the CMS Healthcare Cost Report Information System (HCRIS). Total intensive care beds are not summed because the care provided is specialized. Fast Facts will be updated with FY2019 ICU bed counts in February 2021.</p> <p id="footnote4">4. <strong>Medical-surgical intensive care.</strong> Provides patient care of a more intensive nature than the usual medical and surgical care, on the basis of physicians’ orders and approved nursing care plans. These units are staffed with specially trained nursing personnel and contain monitoring and specialized support equipment for patients who because of shock, trauma or other life-threatening conditions require intensified comprehensive observation and care. Includes mixed intensive care units.</p> <p id="footnote5">5. <strong>Cardiac intensive care.</strong> Provides patient care of a more specialized nature than the usual medical and surgical care, on the basis of physicians’ orders and approved nursing care plans. The unit is staffed with specially trained nursing personnel and contains monitoring and specialized support or treatment equipment for patients who, because of heart seizure, open-heart surgery, or other life-threatening conditions, require intensified, comprehensive observation and care. May include myocardial infarction, pulmonary care, and heart transplant units.</p> <p id="footnote6">6. <strong>Neonatal intensive care.</strong> A unit that must be separate from the newborn nursery providing intensive care to all sick infants including those with the very lowest birth weights (less than 1500 grams). NICU has potential for providing mechanical ventilation, neonatal surgery, and special care for the sickest infants born in the hospital or transferred from another institution. A full-time neonatologist serves as director of the NICU.</p> <p id="footnote7">7. <strong>Pediatric intensive care.</strong> Provides care to pediatric patients that is of a more intensive nature than that usually provided to pediatric patients. The unit is staffed with specially trained personnel and contains monitoring and specialized support equipment for treatment of patients who, because of shock, trauma, or other life-threatening conditions, require intensified, comprehensive observation and care.</p> <p id="footnote8">8. <strong>Burn care.</strong> Provides care to severely burned patients. Severely burned patients are those with any of the following: (1) second-degree burns of more than 25% total body surface area for adults or 20% total body surface area for children: (2) third-degree burns of more than 10% total body surface area; (3) any severe burns of the hands, face, eyes, ears, or feet; or (4) all inhalation injuries, electrical burns, complicated burn injuries involving fractures and other major traumas, and all other poor risk factors.</p> <p id="footnote9">9. <strong>Other intensive care.</strong> A specially staffed, specialty equipped, separate section of a hospital dedicated to the observation, care, and treatment of patients with life-threatening illnesses, injuries, or complications from which recovery is possible. It provides special expertise and facilities for the support of vital function and utilizes the skill of medical nursing and other staff experienced in the management of these problems.</p> <p id="footnote10">10. <strong>System</strong> is defined by AHA as either a multihospital or a diversified single hospital system. A multihospital system is two or more hospitals owned, leased, sponsored, or contract managed by a central organization. Single, freestanding hospitals may be categorized as a system by bringing into membership three or more, and at least 25 percent, of their owned or leased non-hospital pre-acute or post-acute health care organizations. System affiliation does not preclude network participation.</p> <p>© 2022 by Health Forum LLC, an affiliate of the American Hospital Association</p> <p><em style="font-style: italic;">Updated January 2022</em></p> <div> <hr id="bedoccupancyprojectiontool" /><h3>AHA COVID-19 Bed Occupancy Projection Tool</h3> <script type="text/javascript" src="https://data.aha.org/javascripts/api/viz_v1.js"></script><center> <div class="tableauPlaceholder" style="width: 616px; height: 991px;"><object class="tableauViz" height="991" style="display:none;" width="616"><param name="host_url" value="https%3A%2F%2Fdata.aha.org%2F" /><param name="embed_code_version" value="3" /><param name="site_root" value="/t/AHADataHub" /><param name="name" value="COVIDBedShortageDetectionTool/Map-TotalBedsembed" /><param name="tabs" value="no" /><param name="toolbar" value="no" /><param name="showAppBanner" value="false" /><param name="filter" value="iframeSizedToWindow=true" /></object></div> </center> <p class="text-align-center"><a class="btn btn-primary" href="https://metricvu.aha.org/dashboard/covid-bed-shortage-detection-tool">View in MetricVu™ Tool</a></p> <hr id="mapofcommunityhospitalsinus" /><p>Use the map below to find individual hospitals in the U.S. Click on the "Go to AHA Guide Profile" link to see how many staffed beds are in a hospital.</p> <div class="desktop"><script type="text/javascript" src="https://web.archive.org/web/20191113051219js_/https://data.aha.org/javascripts/api/viz_v1.js"></script><div class="tableauPlaceholder" style="width: 1004px; height: 836px;"><object class="tableauViz" height="836" style="display:none;" width="1004"><param name="host_url" value="https%3A%2F%2Fdata.aha.org%2F" /><param name="site_root" value="/t/AHADataHub" /><param name="name" value="HospitalMapforAHAWebsite/Map" /><param name="tabs" value="no" /><param name="toolbar" value="no" /><param name="showAppBanner" value="false" /><param name="showShareOptions" value="false" /></object></div> </div> <div class="tablet"><script type="text/javascript" src="https://web.archive.org/web/20191113051219js_/https://data.aha.org/javascripts/api/viz_v1.js"></script><div class="tableauPlaceholder" style="width: 764px; height: 836px;"><object class="tableauViz" height="836" style="display:none;" width="764"><param name="host_url" value="https%3A%2F%2Fdata.aha.org%2F" /><param name="site_root" value="/t/AHADataHub" /><param name="name" value="HospitalMapforAHAWebsite/MapTablet" /><param name="tabs" value="no" /><param name="toolbar" value="no" /><param name="showAppBanner" value="false" /><param name="showShareOptions" value="false" /></object></div> </div> <div class="mobile"><script type="text/javascript" src="https://web.archive.org/web/20191113051219js_/https://data.aha.org/javascripts/api/viz_v1.js"></script><div class="tableauPlaceholder" style="width: 324px; height: 1636px;"><object class="tableauViz" height="1636" style="display:none;" width="324"><param name="host_url" value="https%3A%2F%2Fdata.aha.org%2F" /><param name="site_root" value="/t/AHADataHub" /><param name="name" value="HospitalMapforAHAWebsite/MapMobile" /><param name="tabs" value="no" /><param name="toolbar" value="no" /><param name="showAppBanner" value="false" /><param name="showShareOptions" value="false" /></object></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="col-md-4"> <p><a class="referlink" data-widget="image" href="https://www.ahadata.com/" rel="follow" target="_blank"><img alt="Learn more about our full suite of data tools.

Now that you have received your HETA profile, the fun work of organizational change begins. We have heard from many hospitals and health systems that the greatest challenge is moving forward beyond the proclamation that equity is essential to patient safety and equitable hospital organizations. We have developed this action planner tool to support you in moving across the transformation continuum.</p> <p>Once you have studied and discussed your profile, you will find the links to the appropriate levers that correspond with advancing to your next position on the continuum. As part of this process, you are invited to participate in a community of learners on the equity journey in hospitals and health care systems. Sharing your innovative policies and practices, learnings, questions and accomplishments are some of the features of the Equity Roadmap Journey Community.</p> <p>As your hospital travels across the continuum we have outlined primary deliverables of each position on the continuum below:</p> <p><img alt="Tranformation Continuum. Primary Deliverables: Exploring—Strategic Planning: Develop strategic plans. Committing—Implementation Planning: Develop implementation plan of strategy. Immersing—Leadership Accountability: CEO and management teams integrate learning DEI framework as Standard Operating Procedures. Affirming—Institutionalization: Policies and practices are assessed and monitored for sustaining DEI progress toward goals. 5. Transforming—Investing in the Community Ecosystem: Collaborate with a wide range of representative stakeholders to promote DEI in the communities hospital serves." data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="9e838e87-ac4c-4fd3-824a-36613b15c142" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/TAP-Transformation-Continuum_0.png" width="2875" height="824" loading="lazy" /></p> <p>Action Planning is a critical step in collectively advancing equity and dismantling structural barriers (e.g., racism, sexism, ageism, etc.) in hospitals and health care systems. This process is designed to support hospitals at every stage of the journey. Some hospitals are just beginning, developing a strategic plan and looking for data to collect, while others have institutionalized equity through policy and practice. Some are collaborating with a wide range of community stakeholders to advance health equity in their ecosystem. Regardless of your starting point, AHA invites you to use the Action Planners to mobilize your leadership, governing body, staff and community toward institutional change. Discover opportunities to change policy and practices that will institutionalize equity in your organization.</p> </div> <div class="col-md-4"> <p><a href="/system/files/media/file/2022/01/equity-roadmap-tap-data-committing.pdf" target="_blank" title="Click here to download the complete Collection and Use of Data to Drive Action: Committing Transformation Action Planner PDF."><img alt="Collection and Use of Data to Drive Action Committing Transformation Action Planner page 1." data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="b2aa3bc1-9f3a-464d-b1da-1ce5570ed630" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/Page-1-equity-roadmap-tap-data-committing.png" width="3806" height="2941" loading="lazy" /></a></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field_topics"> <div><a href="/topics/hospital-data" class="topic" hreflang="en">Hospital Data</a></div> <div><a href="/topics/race-ethnicity-and-language-real-data" hreflang="en">Race, Ethnicity and Language (REAL) Data</a></div> <div><a href="/topics/data-planning" hreflang="en">Data for Planning</a></div> <div><a href="/topics/data-insights" hreflang="en">Data &amp; Insights</a></div> <div><a href="/topics/data" hreflang="en">Data</a></div> <div><a href="/topics/community-health-data" hreflang="en">Community Health Data</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/593" hreflang="en">Workforce Data</a></div> </div> <div class="field_type"> <div>Type</div> <div><a href="/type/transformation-action-planner" hreflang="en">Transformation Action Planner</a></div> </div> <div class="field_access_level"> <div>Access Level</div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/279" hreflang="en">Member</a></div> </div> <div class="field_audience_type_of_person"> <div>Audience - Type of person</div> <div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/141" hreflang="en">Hospital/Health System</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5518" hreflang="en">Clinical</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5517" hreflang="en">Diversity and Inclusion</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5515" hreflang="en">Executive Leadership and Governance</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/162" hreflang="en">Physician Leader</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5516" hreflang="en">Population Health/Community</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field_audience_type_of_hospital"> <div>Audience - Type of hospital</div> <div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5521" hreflang="en">Hospital Departments</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5522" hreflang="en">Community Health</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5529" hreflang="en">Diversity, Equity and Inclusion</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5525" hreflang="en">Human Resources</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5526" hreflang="en">Mission and Strategy</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5528" hreflang="en">Population Health</a></div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/5527" hreflang="en">Quality &amp; Patient Safety</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field_lead"><div class="container"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-8"> <p><strong>AHA Equity Roadmap</strong></p> <p>Transformation Action Planner</p> <p>Lever: <span style="color:#651d32;"><strong>Collection and Use of Data to Drive Action</strong></span></p> <p>Continuum Position: <span style="color:#005844;"><strong>Committing</strong></span></p> </div> <div class="col-md-4"> <center> <div class="external-link spacer"><a class="btn btn-wide btn-primary" href="/system/files/media/file/2022/01/equity-roadmap-tap-data-committing.pdf" target="_blank" title="Click here to download the complete Collection and Use of Data to Drive Action: Committing Transformation Action Planner PDF.">Download the TAP PDF</a></div> </center> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field_search_promotion"> <div>Search Promotion</div> <div>Not Promoted</div> </div> <div class="field_archived"> <div>Archived</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Thu, 20 Jan 2022 13:33:51 +0000 Matthew Diener 681683 at https://www.aha.org
