The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires hospitals to post a list of charges for services and supplies. In its effort to comply with this requirement, Trigg County Hospital (TCH) has posted for patient access a listing of all charges associated with the care and services provided.
Key items to note:
Trigg County Hospital is a Critical Access Hospital (CAH) -
The CAH was created by the federal government to reduce the financial vulnerability of rural hospitals and improve access to healthcare in rural areas by keeping essential services in those rural communities.
CAH's, per federal guidelines, are a cost-based system. This means hospitals charge for the costs of services provided at a rate established by Medicare reimbursement, unlike larger hospitals who are paid using a different reimbursement method.
Patient portions of costs are based upon their insurance coverage and the individual contract between to the hospital or provider and the insurance company.
This is a list of charges and not what is owed by the patient. Amounts owed depend upon the patient's insurance company, whether or not the patient deductible has been met, the patient's out-of-pocket limit and coinsurance coverage. Please, check with your insurance company for help understanding your insurance coverage and benefits.
Please, visit CMS.gov for Glossary of Health Coverage and Medical Terms for additional information and healthcare terms.
