Supplementary notes

Data for community hospitals. Percentages were rounded, so they possibly do not add to 100 percent in all years.
* Private payer formulas were updated in 2014 to account for the change in bad debt calculations, which is now reported as a deduction from revenue rather than a expense.
** Uncompensated care represents bad debt expense and charity care, at cost.
*** Non-patient represents costs for cafeterias, parking lots, gift shops and other non-patient care operating services and are not attributed to any one payer.
