Consistent with the mission of grant regional, care is provided to patients regardless of their ability to pay, including providing services to those persons who are either underinsured or cannot afford health insurance because of inadequate resources. Healthcare services to patients under government programs, such as medicaid hospital services, are also considered part of grant regional's benefit provided to the community, since a substantial portion of such services are reimbursed at amounts less than the costs of providing care.

The amount of charges foregone for services and supplies furnished under this policy for 2014 totaled approximately $139,000. In addition, patient charges to beneficiaries of the wisconsin medicaid program were reduced by approximately $2,305,000 in discounts in 2014.
