Financial assistance and discounts are available for emergency or other medically necessary services provided by BHHCG. Assistance is not available for elective, cosmetic, and non-covered procedures. The following discounts are available for eligible services:
No individual determined eligible for financial assistance under BHHCG’s financial assistance policies will be charged more for emergency or medically necessary hospital care than the amounts generally billed (“AGB”) to individuals with insurance covering such care. AGB is a percentage of Bristol’s full, undiscounted charges for such care. The AGB for BHHCG is calculated as follows:
(1) For 2018, Bristol is using the “look-back method” to calculate the AGB. This method bases AGB on fully paid hospital and professional claims with a primary payer of either Medicare fee-for-service or a commercial payer during the period of October 1, 2017 through September 31, 2018. Bristol divides the sum of total payments made by those payers by the sum of total hospital charges for those claims to identify the “AGB percentage”. This analysis will be completed on an annual basis.
