Mayo Clinic raises prices at Wisconsin hospitals to offset uncompensated care costs

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic Health System will raise rates at its hospitals in northwest Wisconsin on Jan. 1, according to a WEAU news report.

The 4 percent price increase will offset uncompensated care costs at the Wisconsin hospitals. Mayo said the hospitals are projected to provide $534 million in uncompensated care in 2016.

The rate increase will also help offset the $16.3 million in charity care the hospitals are expected to provide this year, according to the report.
