    • Appendectomy ?
      11
      $19,350
      $18,523.73
      An appendectomy is the surgical removal of the appendix, a small organ located on the lower portion of the small intestine on the right side of the body. This is most commonly a laparoscopic surgery. A laparoscopic surgery is a method of surgery that uses instruments inserted through small incisions. These types of surgeries are considered minimally invasive, because they do not require a large open incision. This results in less overall damage to the body, decreased healing times, reduced pain and a lower risk of infection. Appendectomies are performed in the inpatient setting when the patient's condition requires additional monitoring or recovery time.
    • Knee Replacement ?
      11
      $35,592
      $33,904.92
      Knee replacement surgery is a procedure to replace knee joints with artificial implants. The bottom portion of the femur — the bone in the thigh — and the top portion of the tibia — the bone in the lower leg — are replaced with metal implants. These surgeries require large incisions and are complicated and lengthy, typically requiring a two - to three - day hospital stay.

$5,429,990
The dollar amount of free care, based on a hospital’s full established rates, provided to patients who are determined by the hospital to be unable to pay their bill. The determination of a patient’s ability to pay is based on the hospital’s charity care policy. Hospitals will typically determine a patient’s inability to pay by examining a variety of factors such as individual and family income, assets, employment status or availability of alternative sources of funds. Determination of charity care status is made prior to admission if the patient has requested and applied for financial assistance. Charity care status may be granted at a later date depending on the circumstances of the admission, such as an emergency admission, no request for financial assistance prior to admission, or lack of information about the patient’s financial status at the time of admission. Financial assistance provided by the hospital may pertain to all or a portion of the patient’s bill.
Bad Debt ?

Bad debt is the unpaid obligation for care, based on a hospital’s full established rates, for patients who are unwilling to pay their bill. Unlike charity care, bad debt arises in situations where the patient has either not requested financial assistance or does not qualify for financial assistance. In these cases the hospital will generate a bill for services provided. For uninsured patients, the amount of bad debt can pertain to all or any portion of the bill that is not paid. For patients with insurance, certain amounts that are the patient’s responsibility – such as deductibles and coinsurance – are expensed as bad debt if not paid.
