Assessing Hospital Bad Debt 

An Executive Level Study     


Bad debt affects nearly every hospital and health system, yet its impact across the nation is unknown. Our Research Center recently surveyed financial executives from various organizations to better understand the significance of bad debt and help drive change within health systems.

Some highlights of our study:

  • Nearly 50% of executives report that the level of bad debt in their hospital has fallen since the ACA took effect.
  • 20% of hospital executives report securing patient-owed financial responsibility prior to the patient’s hospital stay.
