(Richmond, IN)--Reid Health has released numbers that illustrate the skyrocketing cost of providing local health care. In 2015, Reid expects to incur bad debt and charity care shortfalls of $137 million. That’s more than double what it was seven years ago. But, that does not include Medicare shortfalls. Also, Medicaid only pays about 20% of actual charges. Combining all of those factors means that, this year, Reid will incur costs – but not be paid for – an astronomical 438 million dollars’ worth of care. CEO Craig Kinyon said it means costs to commercially-insured patients will continue to rise.
