Charity Care & Discount Policy

Charity Care Write-Offs

  1. Charity Care shall include all amounts written off for Self Pay Charity Care, Charity Care, and High Medical Cost patients pursuant to this policy.
  2. Patients who qualify for Medi-Cal but do not receive payments that equal the full costs of service or do not receive approval for coverage for the entire stay are eligible for charity care write-offs. These include charges for non-covered costs, non-covered services, denied days or denied stays. Treatment Authorization Request (TAR) denials and lack of payment for non-covered services provided to Medi-Cal patients are to be classified as charity.
  3. In addition, Medicare patients who have Medi-Cal coverage for their co-insurance/ deductibles, for which Medi-Cal does not make a payment, and any amount Medicare does not ultimately provide bad debt reimbursement for will also be included as charity.
