Carolinas HealthCare System 2012 Community Benefit

During 2013, Carolinas HealthCare System invested more than $1.54 billion in community benefit initiatives that enhanced not only the quality of medical care but the quality of life in communities served by the System.

“Community benefit” is a healthcare industry term that refers to the total cost of providing financial assistance to uninsured and underinsured patients; subsidizing Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements below cost; and financing other services that address vital needs but do not pay for themselves. These include such things as research, allied and graduate education, community health improvements, community building initiatives, behavioral health and community health clinics. The impact of these public service activities in 2013 was extraordinary.
